The Canberra Times Carols by Candlelight 2023

Have you experienced the wonder of Canberra Carols by Candlelight?

Carols by Candlelight has been a Canberra tradition since the end of the Second World War, but we need your support to continue.

Tens of thousands of families have taken part in this Canberra institution, coming together once a year to mark Christmas - a season of joy, peace and hope.

For many decades, the Woden Valley Youth Choir has carried responsibility for raising the money and in-kind support to cover the cost and operations of Carols. We were delighted to have The Canberra Times come on board as a naming rights sponsor in 2022, and we are excited to be partnering with them again this year.

To keep The Canberra Times Carols by Candlelight a free, community event, we need to cover our significant running costs.

This is where you come in.

We are looking for donations large and small, from individuals and businesses. This can be as small as $2 and as large as you like! Every little bit helps.

If you are a business, and would like to be a major sponsor, please reach out to Woden Valley Youth Choir via our Facebook page or website. We would love to acknowledge your contribution though our media partnerships and event marketing.

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 9th December 2023 at Stage 88, Commonwealth Park.

Thank you for your support!

(In the unlikely event of cancellation, funds will be carried over to the following year.)
