Christmas Carols Livestream

Carols by Candlelight has marked the start of the festive season for many years in the City of Whittlesea. The event has transitioned online in recent years and now features a Virtual Community Carols Choir in which everyone is free to participate.

This could be the perfect opportunity to get involved if you love to join in on Christmas jingles. The program will feature various Christmas classics as well as newer songs drawn from the rich culture of the City of Whittlesea’s residents. You’ll find Deck the Halls (Whittlesea version), Carol of the Bells, Silent Night, Feliz Navidad and more on the song list!

Whether you’d like to simply just watch and sing along at home, this is event is sure to spread Christmas cheer to your home.

The livestream will be held on Friday 10th December at 7:30pm. To learn more about how you can get involved, click here.


Enjoy a Christmas lunch, hassle free

Now that restrictions are continuing to ease across Victoria, Christmas will be a very social time, where Victorian families can celebrate together.

Sit back, relax and leave the cooking to someone else for Christmas. Why not try dining at a local family-friendly hotel or restaurant. Because the best present of all is having all cooking and cleaning done for you!
