16 December 2015 Jon English to Rock Carols

Famed Aussie musician and actor Jon English will headline this Saturday’s free Coffs Coast Carols at Brelsford Park.

 

“It’s fabulous to have Jon join us for the Carols. He will be a fantastic addition to what is shaping up to be a spectacular event,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight, who was instrumental in bringing the event back to the city centre in partnership with Coffs City Centre Masterplan Committee, C.ex Coffs Group and Lifehouse Church.

 

English will perform two acoustic carols at the event which begins at 6pm and kicks off with kids’ band The Toads.

 

Primary school children from throughout the area have also been busy rehearsing to be part of a combined choir which will take centre stage on the night. Plus there will be Aboriginal dancers and Santa Claus has promised to attend.

 

City Centre Masterplan Committee Chairman, Rod McKelvey, said the strong support from business and the evident community spirit had been inspirational.

 

“That support means that, as well as a headline performance by Jon English, we’re going to be able to close the show with a spectacular fireworks display. It’s not a night to be missed.”

 

Food vendors and kids’ rides will be available to add to the fun of this free, family event.

Alcohol is not permitted, nor glass vessels. Anyone coming along is encouraged to bring non-alcoholic drinks in plastic or metal containers, or to buy soft drinks or food from one of the stalls.

 

In the event of wet weather on Saturday, the whole event will be postponed to Sunday, December 20. However, if wet weather persists, the stage production will move to C.ex Coffs at 6pm. Check the Coffs City Centre or Coffs Coast Carols pages on Facebook for updates.
