The Season for Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts… and This is a GiveAway…

After a weekend away and adventuring with a couple of my kids I have arrived home to the chaos of the last week of the school year and I can tell you that the lull of summer holidays has definitely not quite arrived yet. That being said, we do have a brilliant collection of wonderful GiveAways for all of you. So gather yourselves, I have another week of fabulous prizes coming your way interspersed with our regular blog posts.


Three Sets of Double Tickets to the Summer Concert Series

With each set of tickets there is a voucher for wine tasting and a tour of Groot Constantia

This is another GiveAway for folk that will be in Cape Town over the summer season. Kirstenbosch and Groot Constantia are part of Cape Town’s Big 7 Must See Sites. And if you are going to be visiting in Cape town on a Sunday evening then a visit to one of their Summer Concerts on a Summer Evening are pretty much unmissable events.


Do you see these rolling lawns that are so great for playing on, well on Sunday evenings in the summer season these fields are transformed into the perfect place for a pile of blankets and picnic suppers, not to mention summer music concerts under the stars. Can you imagine how fantastic that is… summer nights, listening to your favourite musicians live in the great outdoors. We have been dying to go to a summer sunset concert for years, somehow our kids weren’t old enough or someone was ill and we couldn’t make it… there was always a reason why we just couldn’t possibly get there. Meanwhile friends have raved on and on about the summer concert series. Every year the line up gets better and better and this year it is almost impossible to choose just one concert to attend. Anyway after years of not making it we will finally be attending a concert and we have tickets to share with three lucky readers… so that they can be part of the fun too!!!

The Line Up

This is the cream of South African musicians, outstanding local performers that have made it world wide and head to Cape Town to enjoy some summer sunshine and to perform in a concert or two while they are visiting. There is definitely something for everyone, from classical to rock n roll, instrumental to lyrical… every genre of music is represented here. There is something for everyone to love in the line up. I know we had a hard time choosing a concert that the whole family could agree on and we will definitely be blogging about it nearer to the time.

The GiveAway

And we have a GiveAway for you. Three sets of double tickets to the concert of your choice. With each set of tickets there is a voucher for wine tasting and a tour of Groot Constantia. This is really one of those perfect holiday treats… a chance for locals to be tourists in their own town and a chance for visitors to visit two of the best sites that Cape Town has to offer. If there is a concert in the list of concerts above that you absolutely have to attend then please enter away… (If you just can’t wait for the competition results and have to have your tickets sooner If you just can’t wait then head over to web tickets and book your tickets…)

This GiveAway works in the usual way, leave a comment before the end of play on 13 the December 2016. Tell us which one concert that you would absolutely love to attend. We will draw and publish the winners on the 14 December. I won’t respond to your comments as we do on our other posts because we don’t want to be included in our own giveaway. Our GiveAways are open to everyone: If you have won a GiveAway before never fear – enter away. This GiveAway is naturally only open to folk who will be able to attend the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert of their choice, over the 2016/2017 summer season.

We would like to thank Hippo Communications who have provided us with tickets to attend a concert of our choice and provided the tickets for our reader giveaway. We were not paid to write this post and the opinions expressed in it are as usual, entirely our own.

  1. Oh my goodness, oh my goodness…this. Just like you I’ve been wanting to do this for years, but it just hasn’t worked out. Here’s hoping I’m a lucky fish 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness!
    I LOVE concerts. How do I even choose off this list?? I definitely want to see Jeremy Loops.

    Great giveaway!!

  3. Either Matthew Mole/Jesse Clegg or the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra. Kirstenbosch concerts are so great! Hope I get lucky!!

  4. I would mostly like to take my kids to
    22 January: The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra – my oldest son started music and he just loved everything about it , so this will be great way for him to see an Orchestra

    My personal favourite that I would like to go to is

    12 March: Cape Folk ‘n Acoustic Music Festival

  5. How does one choose?!! But Lira might top the list at the moment since we’ve just watched the new Disney movie, Moana. She does a cover of the song and it is used during the credits of the South African version.

  6. Wow, what a line up! I’ve seen Jeremy Loops at Kirstenbosch before so would probably choose goldfish or the Philharmonic orchestra this time.

  7. Oh Wow, Would LOVE to take Isabella and the boys to the Philharmonic Orchestra…what a treat….Hope I’m the lucky one!!!
