Carols by Candlelight
In an annual Christmas tradition the City of Armadale invites you to join in the festive spirit of the holiday season with Carols by Candlelight, led by the award winning Armadale City Concert Band. This family friendly Christmas event is bursting with community pride and celebration as it showcases some of the incredible talent from the Armadale area.
There will be some changes this year to ensure a COVIDSafe event. It will still be FREE and accessible, but this year will be a ticketed and fenced event. Tickets are strictly limited so make sure you get yours soon!
Safety is everyone's responsibility, and to ensure a COVIDSafe event, it is expected that all merrymakers practise good hygiene and distancing whilst having a good ol' sing along. We respectfully ask that anyone who is experiencing flu like symptoms please not attend, but don't worry, the event will be livestreamed so that no one misses out!
Come and share in the Christmas joy, and spread a little hope for the future this festive season.
For those wanting to truly embrace the spirit of the season, make sure you bring some non-perishable food items and groceries for The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.
