Join us on Christmas Eve, 24 December from 9pm-10pm in Victoria Square for this extra special candlelight event as we celebrate Christmas with our family – you.
Since 1947 Carols by Candlelight has been a unique event in Christchurch, that encourages people to get together and celebrate family and Christmas in a traditional and magical manner. Bringing together all faiths, age groups and cultures, Carols by Candlelight is a true celebration of family, of Christmas and of community spirit.
Carols by Candlelight starts at 9pm and features the Salvation Army Band, guest performers, a combined Christchurch choir and a few twists to help celebrate. Candles and carol books will be on sale, the proceeds of which help support the YMCA Christchurch’s community and education programmes. Toilets and food vendors will also be onsite.
Thanks to the following supporters for making Carols by Candlelight possible:
