Lord Mayor, Clover Moore, said the village concerts were a great opportunity for families and friends to get together & enjoy a Christmas picnic and night of carols.

“Our village Christmas celebrations bring the community together to enjoy a great line-up of live entertainment from local performers, kids’ workshopsb & a special visit from Santa” the Lord Mayor said.

“I encourage everyone to come along, spend time with friends and family & share in the Christmas spirit of peace & goodwill.”
