Carols by Candlelight

Carols by Candlelight® presented by Myer on Christmas eve has been part of Vision Australia for 76 years. We are looking forward to once again bringing you a smorgasbord of Christmas entertainment.

Performers will be confirmed within the coming weeks and Vision Australia is proud to announce that Anthony Callea and Rachael Leahcar are this year’s Carols by Candlelight Ambassadors. 

Carols by Candlelight® favourite, Callea, is thrilled to return as an Ambassador for the event, as is Leahcar who resumes her role as an Ambassador for the second year in a row.  

This year, Vision Australia is encouraging the public to give back by donating to its Children’s Services, which will benefit from the donations received through its ‘Light a Candle’ campaign. 

Vision Australia's Light a Candle campaign is aiming to light 'virtual' candles to raise the much-needed funds it needs every year to ensure children who are blind, or have low vision, have the services they need. 

Vision Australia’s Children’s Services receives some funding to deliver services, but the need in the community means it is delivering far more than we are funded to do.  Learn more about Children's Services.

As part of the campaign, Vision Australia has commissioned a 3.5-metre high candle art installation, which will light-up to symbolise the fundraising initiative.  

The event commences at 8pm on 24 December. You can watch or listen to the television broadcast or purchase tickets.
