It’s so close we can taste it – yeah, December holidays, and the festive season chill, feasts, family and great summer weather that comes with it.
If you are looking for something different to do this year, why not check out what the team at Sun City have on offer, and make your Christmas a memorable one. Everything from a giant Christmas tree and colourful lights lining the gardens and pathways, to an evening of harmonic carols and a lavish banquet, the experience of Christmas at Sun City is bound to one you will not easily forget.
It all kicks off with a Christmas Lights Ceremony on 14th December, and guests are encouraged to join the occasion outside the Welcome Centre where they will be treated to egg nog and mince pies while Clinton Viljoen performs festive songs. The ceremony will commence at 19h00.
On Christmas Eve, 24th December 2018, a group of entertainers will lead visitors through a selection of traditional and contemporary Christmas-inspired songs and carols, at the Sun Arena (Superbowl) – and Santa Claus has promised to make an appearance, so bring the kids along. Entrance to the event is free for all but monetary donations are welcomed in support of local charities that are supported by Sun City. Doors will open at 19h00.
You will certainly be treated like royalty on Christmas day, as a sumptuous buffet awaits – featuring traditional Christmas dishes and desserts with a contemporary and decidedly South African twist.
“Our festive buffet is a marriage of Christmas classics and authentically South African, festive fare. Inspired by tradition, cognisant of our beautiful climate, and paying homage to local tastes and flavours; our Christmas lunch has a contemporary, yet reassuringly ‘Christmas-y’ feel. Expect a mouthwatering spread and a magical, festive atmosphere,” says Thapelo Modise, Marketing Manager at Sun City.
Christmas lunch will be served at 12h00 in the Kings Ballroom at Sun Central. There will be vibrant entertainment by the Divinity Band during the course of the afternoon and children can enjoy some fun and games in Santa’s Village.
The cost per adult is R 595 and per child, R 295. Booking and prepayment are essential.
