FOR the first time in al­most three decades, the sweet sound of hand­bells will ring through­out the Dar­win Am­phithe­atre as part of tonight’s Car­ols by Can­dle­light.

Led by pro­gram co­or­di­na­tor and choral con­duc­tor Nora Lewis AM, the hand­bell ensem­ble hope to de­liver a stel­lar per­for­mance for Dar­winites tonight af­ter months of re­hearsals.

“I’ve ar­ranged this item es­pe­cially to in­clude the bells, so we’re hop­ing all of our hard work will pay off on the night,” Ms Lewis said.

Stage man­ager Mike Foley said the hand­bells would be a wel­come ad­di­tion.

“We haven’t had the hand­bells for around 27 years so it’s very spe­cial to have them back,” he said.

Mr Foley has been in­volved with the event for well over 10 years and said he loved see­ing the com­mu­nity get to­gether to cel­e­brate Christ­mas.

“It’s a great com­mu­nity event and the amount of time that the per­form­ers and mu­si­cians give to put on the best show of the year is fan­tas­tic,” he said.

Ter­ri­to­ri­ans are en­cour­aged to make a gold coin do­na­tion on en­try which will go to­wards not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion Life Ed­u­ca­tion.
