Carols at Home – 13 December 2020
At the heart of the festival is their Carols at Home, an online version of the highly popular Civic Park Carols.

Channel Nine media personalities Brenton Ragless and Kate Collins will once again be the hosts.
Carols at Home will be streamed online on 13 December 2020 from 7.30pm. Read more here.
