Carols by Candlelight


The Glenorchy Carols by Candlelight is our traditional Christmas celebration held each year in December at the beautiful Tolosa Park Soundshell.

Carols by Candlelight is organised and run by the Lions Club of Glenorchy and Glenorchy City Council. It is a free community family-friendly event.

Glenorchy Carols by Candlelight invites young choirs from local schools to join with adult choirs and featured concert bands. Traditional features include the Glenorchy Concert Brass and guests, along with a terrific line up of adult choirs and choral groups from across southern Tasmania. Patrons are invited to join in singing popular carols from the song books.

Gates to the venue usually open at 6pm with family entertainment preceding the official Welcome to Carols. The program concludes at about 10pm.

While there is general on-site parking, we also encourage patrons to take the ‘park and ride’ option by using the Metro Bus shuttle service from the Glenorchy Bus Interchange to the Soundshell and return. Accessible parking is available for patrons with restricted mobility.

Please see local media in December for precise opening times and transport details.
