An array of Launceston's talented citizens will be on show later next month at one of the city's favourite and most anticipated holiday season events.
Carols by Candlelight is set to return this year, after last year's event was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The event, which is set to take place at Country Club Casino for the first time, will not only offer the community an opportunity to attend an event, but will also provide punters the chance to get in the Christmas spirit.
Funds raised at the event will go towards The Examiner's Empty Stocking Appeal, which collects much-needed funds for Launceston's most vulnerable citizens.
However, it won't only be people off-stage who can expect to be rewarded as a result of the night. Many of the performers scheduled to exhibit their skills on December 18 believed that they too would benefit.
Since 2017, Studio Space Inclusive Arts has provided a range of programs, where people of all ages and abilities are able to partake in drama, photography and podcasting classes.
Under the tutelage of their Artistic director Jerard Lane, members of the organisation's Monday drama group, are scheduled to perform at Carols by Candlelight this year.
"This is the first time we've performed at Carols and it follows our performance of the Rocky Horrors Show, which was our first musical of this year," Mr Lane said.
"We've been singing and dancing our way through 2021 and we're very excited to perform again."
Launceston-based musicians Matthew Garwood and Michelle Rainbow are also set to perform at the event. They are scheduled to sing an individual piece each before collaborating to perform a rendition of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
The event will be the sixth that Mr Garwood has appeared in, and the second for Ms Rainbow.
"I love the atmosphere of everyone hanging out and having a picnic with friends, I used to come a lot as a spectator back in the day," Ms Rainbow said.
Mr Garwood hoped the event would succeed in bringing the community back together after almost two tumultuous years.
Carols tickets are available at rotarypassporttasmania.org - with limited numbers due to COVID-19 restrictions.
