Araluen’s Carols by Torchlight

Enjoy the picturesque surrounds of Araluen Botanic Park on Saturday 11th December, as you sing along to traditional and modern Christmas carols this festive season, as part of Araluen’s Carols by Torchlight, sponsored by Community Bank Roleystone Karragullen.

This year’s program will welcome back the Christmas choirs of the Roleystone Community College and Roleystone Theatre supported by local talents Braxton Hicks band. To our delight, professional singer (and volunteer Community Bank Director) Victoria Corcoran will also be performing at this year’s event.

The Park’s Amphitheatre offers a unique setting to enjoy the show and plenty of grassed areas for families to lay out a picnic rug and enjoy carols under the stars.

Carols will start at 7pm but children’s activities will kick off from 4.00pm with train rides, face painting, visiting firefighters and Santa Claus will be making an appearance; watch this space for updates.

Hot beverages, soft drinks and delicious treats will be available for purchase during the event.

We kindly ask for a small donation to enter the Park – we are a not-for-profit charity and the funds help us keeping the Park looking beautiful! Please register your attendance by booking a ticket for the event.

We look forward to celebrating Christmas with you!
