What Is It?
Have you heard? Sandton City Shopping Centre is the NEW home of the festive and oh-so jolly Christmas Village!
The Christmas Village will be showcasing all things Christmas and African this holiday season! Exhibitors are housed in custom-built wooden huts, reminiscent of some of Europe’s most famous markets. And as if that wasn’t merry enough, an enormous 6m tall Christmas tree will take centre stage at the village, offering the perfect backdrop for those annual family Christmas photos.
Expect to see twinkling fairy lights, hear cheerful Christmas music and taste the delicious cinnamon treats while you marvel at the beautiful decorated Christmas trees to get you into the festive spirit.
Nibble on everything from delicious homemade Christmas puddings, roasted nuts and moreish pancakes to churros, koeksisters and toffee apples. The market is jam-packed with indulgent treats for everyone wanting to stock their pantry for the holiday season.
And as for Christmas gift shopping, it can all be done under one roof at this stunning village. Shoppers can browse and shop through a variety of unique items that have been carefully curated throughout the year.
But the Christmas cheer doesn’t end there! There will also be daily Christmas Carols at sunset performances at 17:00 by Graeme Watkins from the Graeme Watkins Project a fan-favourite on The Voice SA on 4th and 5th December, Yahto Kraft on the 6th and 7th December and renowned South African vocalist, Timothy Moloi on the 8th and 9th December. There’ll also be outdoor Christmas-themed family movie screenings on the big screen.
