Christmas is just a few months away, so it’s time to prepare for a beloved Melburnian tradition. For over 80 years, Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight has enchanted Melbourne audiences with their festive cheer. This event, presented by AAMI, is returning to Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Christmas Eve. Feel the magic of Christmas at this live show, and support children who are blind or have low vision along the way. Tickets are on sale now.
Vision Australia’s Carols By Candlelight
Listen and sing along to Christmas songs and carols at this magical community event. Expect plenty of familiar favourites and brand-new stars on stage, including Casey Donovan, Denis Walter, Marina Prior, Simon Gleeson and Silvie Paladino. More stars on the line-up will be announced in November.
“Together, at Carols by Candlelight, we illuminate the path to a brighter future for children who are blind or have low vision in Australia,” said Ron Hooton, Vision Australia CEO. “This year, we extend a warm invitation to families and friends to unite with us in person at the magnificent Sidney Myer Music Bowl.”
You’re welcome to nibble on food and drink while you soak in the atmosphere and sing along to the music. You can bring along your own food and non-alcoholic drinks for a little picnic. Glass is not permitted, and eskies take up too much room. Soft-sided bags and hampers are fine. If you’d rather buy something, there will be a range of hot and cold food and drinks, including alcohol, available at the venue.
The funds raised from this event will go towards services, like tailored education, for children who are blind or have low vision.
Gates will open from 4pm, and the main event will start at 8pm.
Meanwhile, if you’re unable to attend the event on Christmas Eve, you can buy tickets to the rehearsal night on December 23. Of course, you can also watch the show live on Channel 9 and 9Now, or listen to it on Magic 1278 or Vision Australia Radio. Channel 9 will also replay the show on Christmas Day.
