Launceston Carols by Candelight 2016 hosts local talent for sing-along carols and concert

Star talents of Carols by Candlelight, Abbey Hansson and Frank Kerr, recently met with famed reindeer Rudolph’s Tasmanian cousin John to learn more about the upcoming carols at City Park on Sunday, December 18.

Since John was too busy singing Jingle Bells, Alderman Danny Gibson stepped in to talk about this year’s Carols by Candlelight.

“The evening will include over 40 Christmas songs, many of which will be sing-along carols, and most importantly it’s an all-local, volunteer lineup,” Alderman Gibson said.

“All profits raised support The Examiner Newspaper’s Empty Stocking Appeal, presented by the Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise and the generous support of ONE Agency and VOS Construction.

“It promises to be a wonderful event ... exactly one week before Christmas Eve.”

Mr Kerr said he and Ms Hansson will sing a mix of classic carols and “some snazzy jazz numbers” – but sadly John won’t be joining them on stage.

Tickets are $5 adult, $3 child: gates open 5pm for 7pm start: strictly no pets, smoking or alcohol.
