Calling all carollers

PERFORMERS and food vendors are invited to participate in the 2018 Glenorchy Carols – ‘A Not So Silent Night’ – on Saturday 8 December 2018.

Glenorchy City Council is seeking a diverse range of performers from primary school choirs to keen adult choirs, performance soloists and groups.

This year’s event will be held at the Tolosa Park Soundshell, with event organisers already busy dusting off the songbooks and booking Santa in for a visit.

Council’s free event promises fun for the whole family and unites Glenorchy and the greater Hobart community in the joy of the season.

Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston attended last year’s carols and said it was a community event not to be missed.

“I shared this outing with my husband, children and friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed the night and will be looking forward to this year’s carols,” she said.

“I urge interested food vendors and community groups to be involved in this large event, which last year attracted more than 2000 patrons.

“Looking around and viewing the sea of happy faces, so many Christmas outfits and smiles warmed my heart.”

Save the date in your diary as this year’s event promises a festive evening of carols and candles, hands-on crafting activities, music from school choirs and local performers, a range of affordable food and, of course, a visit from Santa.

Performers can find expression of interest forms from the Moonah Arts Centre website.

Food vendor expression of interest forms are available on the Glenorchy City Council website.

Applications for both performers and food vendors close 7 September 2018.
