CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS IN OUR CITY: You’re invited to sing along & #SelfieWithSanta

The City of Newcastle’s Christmas tree at Queens Wharf is about to get its very own, live, soundtrack.

The tree, installed earlier this month, has already become the home of the Christmas selfie in town and it’s about to get even more festive with a bunch of fun events the whole family will enjoy. It all begins with a massive day of Christmas joy on Sunday the 1st of December with the party continuing on the 8th and 15th of December too.

Everyone is invited to sing along to their favourite Christmas tunes with live performances from some of the city’s most loved acts and performers. The always entertaining barbershop-style A cappella choir, Novatones will be on hand at every event to bring the Christmas spirit with their renditions of your Christmas Carols.

Other performers making appearances over the three events include the Newcastle City Choir, the National Music Academy’s Bree Rusev and the inspirational, Shake Rattle and Roll – a choir giving voice to people living with Parkinson’s disease.

Check out all the details for each event below and keep your eye on the gig and event guide to keep up to date.
