Carols By Candlelight


Fri 16 Dec 2016, 7:00pm–9:30pm

Where: Kuirau Park, Corner of Ranolf St & Lake Rd, Rotorua, Bay of Plenty

Restrictions: All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Admission: Free

Rotorua Lions in conjunction with NZME will be presenting Carols by Candlelight again this year under the trees in Kuirau Park, in front of the covered bridge between the two lakes.

This celebration of Christmas will commence at 7pm and will finish around 9:30pm. The programme will feature the Rotorua Symphonic Band and local choirs and entertainers led by soloist and choir conductor, Evelyn Falconer. Candles will be lit around 8:50pm.

Song sheets for the Carol singing will be published by the Rotorua Daily Post, a few days before the event, and should be brought along so that there is strong audience participation. The site is a natural amphitheatre, which is expected to be filled if the event is favoured by a warm summer evening. Patrons are expected to bring their own rugs and warm clothing. They can also bring their own candles, but the Lions Club will be selling candles and holders for a gold coin donation, the proceeds from which sales will be donated to a local charity. There will be food stalls and coffee vendors on site for the whole show.

The event will only be cancelled if the weather is wet, or the site waterlogged, and if necessary, cancellation notices will be announced during the day on the NZME 97.5 Radio station.
