Roaming performers of several types
Bubble play
Face painting

Wow - What a lot to do in one afternoon and for free!

ABOUT THE RHYTHMOS CHOIR
This award-winning choir of 35 talented musicians and singers will be singing the carols - along with you - and they have recently been invited to sing as part of a massed choir in New York!

They will leave for New York in April 2018 to join singers from around the world to perform as part of the "The King's Singers' 50th Anniversary concert" - and you can see them for free at this event!



This promises to be a great day for young and old alike, so make sure you bring your friends and family to join in the fun. Why not bring along a picnic blanket/picnic to make it more comfortable for this fun-filled afternoon of frivolity and activities.

Organisers are also asking if you could please bring along an unwrapped present to donate to the Parkerville Children's Home. This home has kids that will not otherwise get Christmas presents, and they would be so appreciated! Some of the things they are asking for are:

Kinetic Sand
Art and Craft supplies
Lego and Duplo
Dolls
Play Doh
Boogie Boards
Balls - soccer, AFL
