Carols by Candlelight



Your Habitat Carols by Candlelight

Each year the City of Hobart hosts a Carols by Candlelight event which showcases a selection of traditional carols and favourite Christmas songs. The event provides friends and families an opportunity to enjoy wonderful choirs and talented local performers in one of Hobart's' most beautiful garden settings.

Held in the magnificent St David’s Park, the 2015 Your Habitat Hobart Carols by Candlelight featured many traditional carols and family favourite Christmas songs. The event was held across two evenings, on both Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 December 2015, to allow more people to attend the event.

The event was hosted by Jane Longhurst, an accomplished actress and performer. Joining Jane were local performers Grace Ovens, Josh Direen, Jeremy Pyefinch, Cassie Ogle and Martine Holliday who have all won major awards at this year’s City of Hobart Eisteddfod. Performers were accompanied by the City of Hobart Carols by Candlelight School Choir and the Taroona High School Senior Concert Band. The Program again featured much-loved traditional carols and fun, family favourite Christmas songs.

The City of Hobart would like to thank all of our sponsors including Your Habitat, Southern Cross Austereo, Variety and 7HOFM.
