It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is just around the corner. We can her the tear of wrapping paper, smell the pudding and feel the Christmas excitement!

Girl About Town is super excited to once again, work on the ‘Torrens Transit Carols by Candlelight’ 2019. On Saturday December 7th, families from all over South Australia are set to flock to Elder Park for their fix of endless Christmas entertainment for the 75th year.

…And boy do we have a show for you!

Did you hear? The performance line up is uber impressive. Picture this…yourself and a group of friends, enjoying a summers night in Elder Park listening to artists including Shannon Noll sing carols, with a plate of nibbles and a whole lot of Christmas cheer. Sounds great right?

Joining Shannon Noll at this year’s Torrens Transit Carols by Candlelight, is Australian rock singer, songwriter and media personality Ella Hooper. She is fondly known as the lead-singer of Aussie rock band Killing Heidi, who reached commercial success and popularity with songs like ‘Weir’ and ‘Mascara.’

Shauna Kane, Executive Producer of Torrens Transit Carols by Candlelight says, “We are thrilled to have Ella Hooper and Shannon Noll as part of this year’s extensive line-up, and no doubt they’ll both bring a memorable performance to the stage.”

We’re not done yet!

From winning X-Factor in 2016 to representing Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017 and finishing in the top 10, nineteen- year-old Isaiah Firebrace has achieved what many singers can only dream of and will also be performing on the evening.

Joining the line-up, is ever so cool girl group G-Nation, Harrison Craig, Rachael Leahcar, children’s performer and singer Sam Moran, Australian soprano Sky Ingram and Aussie country music talent and multi-Golden Guitar winner Amber Lawrence.

To the part you’ve been waiting for, the fireworks! Yes, the impressive fireworks are scheduled for 10pm and you won’t want to miss it!

So are you ready to get your Christmas cheer on? Grab your friends and family, bring a picnic rug, nibbles and your Christmas spirt, to this year’s Christmas Carols.
