The Moët & Chandon Golden Christmas Tree marks the opening of South Africa’s festive season

As the countdown to the end of the year begins, it’s worth taking a look at one of the festive season’s most celebrated markers: the Christmas tree. And few are more awe-inspiring than Cape Town’s grand Moët & Chandon Golden Christmas Tree, created entirely from champagne bottles.

Sitting at an impressive four-storeys high and built with over 1800 recycled champagne bottles collected from all over South Africa, the Moët & Chandon Golden Tree is wrapped in a shimmering gold ribbon created using over 2000 discs. Once the sun sets, visitors can look forward to an impressive lighting display, with the 230 metres of LED lights individually programmed to illuminate in sync with themed festive music that most attendees will most definitely recognise!

This year Moët & Chandon have also created the ‘Moët Music Box’ which will allow visitors the opportunity to personally interact with the Moët & Chandon Golden Tree – by simply turning the music box lever they’ll activate a magical 40-second lighting show, bringing the tree to life.

Capetonians and visitors alike are invited to this year’s Moët & Chandon Golden Tree Lighting Ceremony – taking place on Thursday the 29th of November.  The evening will include performances by the acclaimed South African Youth Choir and the Cape Town Ballet Company. Maps Maponyane has been invited to MC for the evening.

The Moët Champagne Tree will be located adjacent to the Radisson Red at the V&A Waterfront Silo District. With shops open until 8pm, visitors are also invited to indulge in some late-night Christmas shopping on the 29th of November, as well as delicious Moët & Chandon festive specials at participating restaurants in the Silo District.
