It’s almost time for Rockhampton Regional Council’s much loved Christmas event, Mayor’s Carols by Candlelight.

An evening of delightful carols and Christmas songs is assured, performed by local singers, dancers, musicians, and you, the audience!

Two concerts are scheduled; the first on Wednesday 8 December at the Pilbeam Theatre and the second at the Rockhampton Music Bowl on Saturday 11 December.

Mayor Tony Williams encouraged people to attend the event.

“Director Melanie March has been working hard to give us yet another fabulous Carols by Candlelight concert featuring local singers, dancers and musicians performing a variety of everyone’s favourite Christmas songs and carols.

“Rockhampton Regional Council is very proud to produce this event for the community. Not only does Mayors Carols by Candlelight have a wonderful atmosphere enabling families and friends to come together and enjoy the festive spirit, but it also helps a local charity,” he said.
