Hyde Park Corner Is Getting Festive!


November has arrived which only means one thing – things are about to get festive around the city! And if you’re looking to kick off the holiday season on a high note, don’t miss Hyde Park Corner’s time-honoured tree-lighting ceremony on 06 November 2019. Here’s what you can expect. 

‘Tis The Season!

There’s plenty of reason for cheer as Hyde Park Corner this holiday season! The centre is getting its festive season programme underway with its time-honoured tradition of a tree-lighting ceremony – which promises to be even more fabulous this year. Coinciding with the celebration of Hyde Park Corner’s ‘Fifty & Fabulous’ birthday, the Love the Lights spectacle will take place on Wednesday, 06 November 2019 and will be its most memorable yet.

What To Expect

The family-friendly event will feature something for all ages. The lineup includes kids entertainment, the show-stopping lighting of the tree, and headliners Timothy Moloi and Adam Howard’s Joburg Big Band will be performing all your favourite festive hits.

Festivities in the Centre Court kick off at 17:30 on Wednesday 06 November 2019, with the live performance starting at 18:00. There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained, with sing-alongs, dance routines, craft activities, and more. Early Christmas shopping is a must, with stores trading until 20:00 on the evening.

Contribute To A Great Cause This Festive Season

In the spirit of the season, visitors are invited to participate in Hyde Park Corner’s Love the Sounds initiative, by bringing their pre-loved musical instruments to be donated to the Music Enlightenment Project, a community-based NPO situated in Braamfontein.

The initiative was founded in 2009 with the aim of creating a world where the lives of children and communities are enriched and transformed through the experience, practice and performance of music. Their holistic approach involves creating successful futures for children by developing not only their skills as musicians but also their life skills through music education.

Donations of musical instruments can be made at designated areas in Hyde Park Corner throughout November and December.
