Kirstenbosch carols usher in festive season


IT wouldn’t be the festive season in Cape Town without Carols at Kirstenbosch, one of the City’s most-loved carols events, taking place from Thursday, December 12 to Sunday, December 15. Grab a picnic blanket, round up your friends and family and enjoy a wonderful evening set against what is one of the world’s most magnificent backdrops.

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Kirstenbosch and sponsored by Pick n Pay, the event will usher in the festive season with your favourite singalongs, delicious food and the beautiful sight of thousands of glow sticks lighting up the evening sky.

Pick n Pay will make your experience as hassle-free and as enjoyable as possible when you pre-order a picnic, which will be ready for you when you arrive at the event – what could be easier? There’s also a special picnic for children. See details below. If you’d rather decide what to eat on the evening, the Pick n Pay food truck will be on site, serving mouth-watering options like king-size burgers, festive gammon rolls, and a tasty mushroom and brie burger with cranberry sauce as a veggie option.

In addition, there will be two coffee stations serving a selection of coffees and hot beverages, and a snack selection including hot dogs, mince pies, cupcakes, crisps and chocolates, mini candy canes, biltong, doughnuts and water. Please note that wine will not be on sale at the event, but you are welcome to bring your own.

Carols will be led by Cape Town Concert Brass and the Cape Town Male Voice Choir. Your support of this event enables Rotary International to assist communities across the Western Cape in a wide range of community-based programmes, including youth-leadership development, civic-responsibility and various health programmes, specifically those around cancer-awareness. These are in addition to programmes dedicated to feeding-schemes, numeracy and literacy, early childhood development, elderly support, water-saving and sanitation-awareness. Rotary Club of Kirstenbosch thanks Pick and Pay and patrons for their continued and valued support.
