A group enjoying carols in 2022

Carols by Kingston is just around the corner and is the perfect event to bring your family and friends together for a great night out.

We are super fortunate to have the fabulous Rhonda Burchmore as our MC, with the amazing Lucy Durack and the ‘Kings of Christmas’ Rob Mills and Bobby Fox set to headline the event that will feature a line-up of familiar crowd favourites. They will be supported by the Australian Girls Choir and the Mordialloc Jazz Orchestra.  

Along with on stage performances, the family-friendly event will also see the return of the very popular Santa’s Workshop Kids Zone, with a selection of free activities, including Christmas craft, face painting and photos with Santa, as well as some cool rides.

Add in a wide variety of food vendors, the Edithvale Fire Brigade barbecue, and spectacular fireworks display, and it promises to be a terrific night of festive cheer for the whole community to enjoy.

Mayor Jenna Davey-Burns said Council is proud to share this wonderful free event of festive cheer, especially at a time when many families are doing it tough. Rain, hail or shine, this evening is about leaving the stress of the season behind and kicking back on the grass to relax with friends and family.

“Despite some gumboot weather last year, we still had a great crowd along, singing and dancing to our favourite festive tunes, including my favourite, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer,” Cr Davey-Burns said.

“After a big year, taking a moment out and coming together as a community is what we hope will fill your cup back up. Bring your big voices, we’ll bring the fun and let’s celebrate together.” 

Carols by Kingston is a free event; however, a limited number of reserve seating spaces are still available for $20.

Carols by Kingston is being held at Bicentennial Park in Chelsea on Sunday 10 December from 6.00pm – 9.30pm.
