Carols by Candlelight

Carols by Candlelight is one of AlburyCity's most loved and anticipated community events.  Each year, thousands of people converge on the beautiful QEII Square to celebrate the spirit of Christmas in an enchanting, festive atmosphere enjoyed by all ages.

The professionally produced show features a line up of local talent presenting Christmas favourites and contemporary classics.  The cast is backed by a fifty strong Gospel Choir and a show band made up of the city's best local musicians.  And of course, the star of the show is always the big man in the red suit! 

Free song books are available and proceeds from candle sales on the night go to local charities.  A host of food and drink is available for purchase during the event and reserved seating for the disabled and elderly is available with bookings open in early December. 

Auditions for Carols

If you would like to audition for regional Australia's best Carols line up, watch this space.  Calls for auditions are advertised in July / August of each year and are conducted during September / October.  Rehearsals follow throughout November before the big night in late December.  Budding performers can audition for a solo act or in groups to perform song, dance or instrumental arrangements and a professional creative team supports the cast to work on vocal coaching, stage craft and presentation.

Gospel Choir

Not up for an individual performance?  The Albury Carols Gospel Choir welcomes new members each year to enhance the show with delightful harmonies and powerful vocal backing for the cast. 

Carols Food Vendors

Applications for food stall vendors at Albury Carols open in early November.  Watch this space.
