Thirroul comes alive on Sunday night, December 11 for the fifth annual Carols by the Beach.
Last year, more than 3000 people turned out, and this year, even more are expected to hit the park next to Thirroul Beach to celebrate Christmas with markets, international food stalls and free rides for the kids, before a full night of music and carolling.
Organised by a 20-strong team from C3 Church, the carols aim to bring the community together.
“We have sponsors to cover costs but the church doesn’t make any money out of the event,” says Stuart. “We have charity partners, so this year, all money raised goes to Thirroul Surf Club.
“As always, it’s going to be a fantastic event, which just keeps getting better and better.”
4pm– markets, food stalls and rides
There’s also the opportunity to have your family Santa photos taken, outside the Surf Club, with the beach in the background. You can even include the family dog!
5pm– Performances by Chloe Hayman, Shalana Thomas, Jason Inveron and Andrew Fisher
6.30pm– Kids Carols (complete with a show and a visit from Santa)
8.45pm – Fireworks
