For the past two decades, Jacaranda FM and SPAR have proudly presented an annual Christmas show showcasing some of South Africa’s most notable musicians. On 6 December, the SPAR Carols by Candlelight event will take place at the SunBet Arena Time Square, Pretoria. Simultaneously, the live concert will be streamed worldwide for those who wish to enjoy the soul-stirring music with their families at home. Tickets are priced at R65 per person, limited to 7000 seats for the live event, while streaming is unlimited.
This year’s theme, “HOME FOR CHRISTMAS,” pays tribute to those who travel and gather to share in the Christmas spirit through music that is truly unique to South Africa.
The partnership marks 21 years of festive music collaborations, bringing everyone from around the world ‘home’ to celebrate Christmas like only South Africans can. “We have a world-class lineup of musicians and carols that not only set the tone for the Festive Season, but also evoke the spirit of giving,” says Deirdre King, Managing Director at Jacaranda FM.
Fans are invited to express their generosity by donating towards this touching cause. All donations and ticket proceeds are in support of the Good Morning Angels team in providing new toys to vulnerable children across South Africa.
“We’re exceptionally proud to headline an event that sees top-tier musicians collaborate in the spirit of goodwill. More importantly, the donations collected during this incredible event ensure that we can support a cause like Santa’s Shoebox so that over 1000 children’s homes in Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Pietermaritzburg and Cape Town feel valued and special this Christmas with a gift of their own,” said Maxine D’Amico, SPAR Inland Advertising and Promotions Manager.

SPAR will host a kiddies’ area themed around ‘HOME FOR CHRISTMAS,’ where children can engage in crafts and face painting. Families can also explore the Christmas market, featuring vendors selling festive decor, Christmas merchandise and various treats at food stalls surrounding the venue.

“We’re extending a warm welcome to Judith Sephuma, one of South Africa’s greatest voices, to the ‘Carols family.’ We know your iconic voice will make our 21st SPAR Carols by Candlelight even more magical,” says King.
Join the most anticipated festive concert of the year; kids under three enter for free. Those who prefer to cozy up and watch the concert from home can join by visiting www.jacarandafm.com.
Be sure to get your tickets as they tend to sell out fast. For those who can’t join or want to re-experience the magic of this year’s Christmas carols, SPAR Carols by Candlelight will be rebroadcast on December 24th.
