There’s getting festive and then there’s getting Moët festive – and this year the storied Champagne house is going all out to bring the cheer – and the glam. After all, nothing makes a statement quite like a four-storey Christmas tree built out of 1 800 recycled bottles of champagne and you’re invited to be a part of this year’s Moët & Chandon Golden Tree Lighting Ceremony.
Taking place from 7pm-9pm on Thursday 29 November in Cape Town’s Silo District (adjacent to the Radisson Red hotel), don’t miss a chance to witness the official opening of the holiday season. The evening will also include open-to-the-public performances by the acclaimed South African Youth Choir and the Cape Town City Ballet.
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.
Although the Tree Lighting Experience is open to all, be sure to get your VIP ticket (they’re going for R395 from the Radisson Red hotel), it’ll grant you access to the VIP area situated around the tree and a mini Moët bottle presented from the much-loved mini Moët Serving Machine. Now that’s what you call a #moetmomentct.
