Crowds to return for Carols by Candlelight

After a 2 year absence, crowds will be back for a Christmas tradition.

Crowds will return for Carols by Candlelight for the first time in 2 years.

10,000 tickets -a full capacity crowd- will go on sale to the general public Wednesday November 17 at 2pm AEDT.

Last year no crowds were in attendance with performers singing for cameras and a socially-distanced choir.

The event will operate under the Art Centre Melbourne’s COVIDSafe and Wellbeing Plan and will be a fully vaccinated event for those 12 years and over.

Vision Australia CEO Ron Hooton said, “We are truly thrilled to welcome back the thousands of people who make the annual trip to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Christmas Eve. Coming together as a family is what this event is all about, which is why we’re delighted AAMI will be by our side as the official presenting partner this year.

“Vision Australia has provided over 150 years of support services, aids and equipment to help people who are blind or have low vision to live the life they choose and it’s because of these shared values that partnerships like this one will go a long way towards helping the over 2,300 families whose children rely upon our services each year,” he added.

Nine will screen the event as always on Christmas Eve, December 24.

      1. Yeah, I understand that logic, but it is still a misleading as a statement, as it’s an annual event. You could say it goes 364 days without an audience every year…

        It only had one year without crowds, not two.
