On the first day of Christmas, Cape Town Etc gifted me… a Moët & Chandon golden sparkle bottle and a visit to the Champagne Tree.

The V&A’s new Silo district is set to shine as Moët & Chandon unveil the city’s grandest Champagne Christmas Tree in a spectacular tree lighting ceremony on December 7, hosted by charismatic Maps Maponyane.
Not only is the impressive Champagne Tree 10 metres tall and made entirely from over 1 500 recycled Moët & Chandon champagne bottles, it’s also interactive.

In true festive spirit, you’ll be able to send your messages to your loved ones on the night… all your messages that include the hashtag #moetmomentcapetown will appear as you post them on a light ribbon wrapped around the tree. And, to add to the excitement, when you engage on social media using the #moetmomentcapetown followed by the popping champagne bottle emoji the golden crown at the top of the tree will spin.

You’re all invited to join the fun at 7.30pm on Thursday, December 7. The tree will be lighting up the Silo district until January 3.
