Play School favourite and nine-time Golden Guitar winner Colin Buchannan has been confirmed as the headline act for the upcoming Carols by Candlelight event in Longreach, to be hosted for the first time at the Outback Entertainment Centre at the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame.
The program features the Longreach Combined Churches, Longreach Town Band, Longreach School of Dance, Central West Music Makers, Longreach State School and Our Lady’s Choirs and more.
The Carols by Candlelight event is organised by Longreach Regional Council in partnership with the Combined Churches of Longreach.
The annual event features market stalls and a barbeque in addition to the concert program, making it one of the landmark events of the holiday season.
This year the event will take place under the lights of the Outback Entertainment Centre, and a free shuttle bus will collect concert-goers from the Visitor Information Centre and Lioness Park starting at 5:30pm.
Longreach Regional Council Mayor, Cr Ed Warren, says the annual event is one of his favourites.
“It’s such a special time of the year – to see the talent and goodwill in our community, on display for all to see, makes me very proud.”
Council coordinates the event in partnership with the community each year.
Council also says there are still some market stalls available; interested parties can contact Council’s Events and Community Support officer, Jacquettaa Arnold via firstname.lastname@example.org.
