Look who’s coming to Carols!

The hit children’s group, The Kazoos, will star at Hume City Council’s Carols by Candlelight, to be held on Sunday 6 December 2015.

The lively and versatile team will headline an array of sensational talent on the Christmas stage at Highgate Recreation Reserve in Craigieburn.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Helen Patsikatheodorou, encouraged everyone to bring their friends and family to the festive event.

“Hume’s Carols by Candlelight is always a spectacular night, and I’m confident that this year’s show will be our best yet,” Cr Patsikatheodorou said.

“The Kazoos will take to the stage fresh from the release of their new DVD, A Teddy Bear’s Picnic, and the group is certain to have everyone tapping their feet.

“Charli Robinson will again compere, and the original Hi-5 star has a couple of beautiful carols in store for people of all ages.

“Tubby the Robot will mesmerise anyone who is fascinated by technology and the future, because Tubby is made of aluminium and lives a life that is similar to the rest of us.

“The Howling Huskies shall also join us on stage, and while the sled dogs are more at home in the North Pole, they will demonstrate their agility and strength with some eye-catching activities.”

Other performers on the festive night will include Hume Dancers, Marceau Camille, Aydan Calafiore, The Jingle Bells, Sunbury’s Naturally Cool Big Band, and children from Willmott Park, Aitken Creek and Craigieburn South primary schools.

While the official Carols show will commence at 7pm, residents are warmly welcome to arrive from 5pm to enjoy a number of family activities, including a Christmas market and an animal farm.

Cr Patsikatheodorou said there would be much for children to do.

“Hume Libraries will present a special Story Time before the show, so that youngsters can get in the mood of the evening with a yuletide tale,” she said.

“Council will coordinate craft activities for children, as well as a jumping castle and face painting.

“Families should feel free to schedule in dinner at the reserve, because we’ll have food stalls to keep tummies happy before the main event.”

The night will conclude with a fireworks display that is designed to conjure up the true magic of Christmas.

Cr Patsikatheodorou said Hume’s Carols by Candlelight could be a great opportunity for youngsters to glimpse one very important person.

“One of my first tasks as mayor has been to call the North Pole to negotiate an appearance by that big red-suited fellow,” she said.

“He is a very busy person in December and the elves will be working around the clock to get everything ready for Christmas Eve.

“I have been told that Santa Claus will try to organise a trip to Hume’s Carols by Candlelight, so my fingers are crossed on behalf of the children of our wonderful municipality.”

Hume’s Carols by Candlelight is completely free to attend, and residents do not need to book.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic rug and candles, and everyone is reminded that the night is alcohol and drug-free.

Cr Patsikatheodorou said the merry occasion had become a magnificent tradition.

“It’s a terrific way to spend time with others from your neighbourhood, and share the spirit of Christmas with loved ones,” she said.

Hume’s Carols by Candlelight is one of a number of major festivities organised by Council each year.

Other events include the Craigieburn Community Festival in February, and Hume’s Multicultural Festival in April.
