It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas in Ipswich with community carols singing out across the city over the next few weeks.
From sideshow alley and delicious food to popular local performs, a 30-strong live orchestra and even fireworks, there is something for the whole family at local community carol events.
Community, Culture, Arts and Sport Committee chairperson Councillor Andrew Fechner said there will be more than two-dozen free and low-cost events for the community to come together in goodwill and joy.
“For those who love Christmas carols, homegrown musicians, local choristers and orchestras will perform special festive sing-alongs in Brassall, Redbank Plains, Robelle Domain, South Ripley, St Paul’s Anglican Church and Mega Christmas Carols in Chuwar,” Cr Fechner said.
“There really is something for everyone, so check out the whole program and start planning your festive outings at ChristmasinIpswich.com”
