Kirstebosch’s popular Sunday concert series is back, and the line up is great as always. Plenty of artists to choose from depending on your music taste. The concerts started on the 25th of Nov, but they run all the way through until the 7th of April 2013.
My favourites are: Yoav & Tailor (30 December 2012), Toya deLazy (7 January), Goldfish (3 March 2013), Jeremy Loops (10 March 2013) and Shadowclub & Gangs of Ballet (24 March 2013), MiCasa & Natasha Meister (31 March).
It’s pretty hard getting into the Christmas spirit here in Africa, where the weather resembles a postcard from somewhere Tropical rather than a Christmas card. The Carols By Candlelight concerts are always a great way to kickstart that Christmassy feeling in even the most Grinchy of people.
Dates & Times: Every Sunday from 25 November 2011 until 07 April 2012. 5.30pm – 7pm (Gates open at 4pm). Bad weather may cancel.
Cost: Ticket prices vary.
