About the Show
This year the celebrations at our annual Monash Carols by Candlelight on Sunday 9 December will be bigger than ever as we recognise 30 years of bringing joy, fun and the spirit of Christmas to the thousands of people who attend every year.
Our FREE annual carols concert in Jells Park, Wheelers Hill usually attracts 25,000 people, the largest crowd of any community carols across Melbourne. It features wonderful carols from a host of performers and a spectacular fireworks finale that lights up the sky.
The event will kick off at 4pm with the Kids Tinsel Town which includes free rides and activities for children and an opportunity for a photo with Santa (so bring your camera along).
The main concert will get underway at 8pm, featuring an impressive line-up including Mirusia Louwerse, an Australia-Dutch soprano, Josh Piterman, an award winning musical theatre star, Aydan Calafiore, The Voice 2018 runner up, and Natalie Ong, a singer-songwriter from The X-Factor 2016.
The Monash Carols by Candlelight Band and the Exaudi Choir will entertain and perennial favourite Channel Nine’s Pete Smith will again compere the carols. Glow novelties and a selection of drinks and food will be available for purchase.
