Carols by Candlelight is Vision Australia’s largest annual fundraiser, with 100 per cent of profits from ticket sales and donations going towards services for children who are blind or have low vision. This year donations made during the 24-hour period over Christmas will have double the impact, with all to be doubled by the Vision Australia community.

  1. Silvie is always a shining star! Loved Denis, Marina & David. But I muted some for the first time ever. There weren’t enough traditional carols or even “Amazing Grace”. And I do wish some of them would realise that carols are not meant to be jazzed up at all!

    In 1970, Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight was televised for the first time on Channel Ten. Channel 9 took over in 1979 and has continued to be a broadcast partner ever since.
