The Moët & Chandon Golden Tree Lighting Ceremony 2019

The countdown to the festive season begins and with it comes the season’s most iconic activity: lighting the Christmas tree. While cities around the world celebrate this annual event by constructing unique trees, Cape Town offers an awe-inspiring addition to the global family with the exquisite Moët & Chandon Golden Tree.

Moët & Chandon Golden Tree is created entirely from champagne bottles which illuminate the V&A Waterfront Silo District. Built with over 2000 recycled champagne bottles and soaring over four-storeys, this dazzling constructed tree is wrapped in shimmering gold ribbon – created from over 2000 discs. Each LED light is programmed to illuminate in time with festive themed music, making it the spectacle of the season.

This year the honour of flipping the festive switch will be with Springboks Rugby Captain, Siya Kolisi with several of the world cup winners in attendance along with other local celebrities.
