Aria charting local artists Missy Lancaster and Alfie Arcuri will star in the 2018 Carols in the Garden at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan on Saturday, December 15.
One of the highlights of the South West Sydney festive calendar, Carols in the Garden is a Macarthur favourite and showcases some of the best of local entertainment talent.
Missy Lancaster, a country artist originally from Picton who now splits her time between Sydney and Nashville, and Alfie Arcuri, winner of the fifth season of The Voice, will headline the live concert.
Classic and modern Christmas favourites will also be performed by Mount Carmel Samoan Community Choir, C4 Choir, Sarah and Emmalisa Engelbrecht, a 19 piece orchestra, and Elise McCann, who is best known for her recent role as Miss Honey in the stage show Matilda.
Families are encouraged to bring a blanket and settle in on the Lakeside Lawn from 5pm.
Pre-show entertainment including Garden mascot Buttercup, plus a great variety of food stalls, start from 5pm with the Carols in the Garden kicking off at 7pm.
Event sponsors the Campbelltown Catholic Club will be selling candles and glow products as the sun goes down with the money going to the Dilly Drought Drive.
“We are proud to be supporting the longest running and most loved Christmas concert in the region,’’ says Cambelltown Catholic Club general manager Michael Lavorato.
“In the spirit of the season it will be fantastic to raise funds for local farmers through the Dilly Drought Drive.”
