Christmas date night with Stan
Top recording star Stan Walker will be the headline act at this year’s Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park show at the Auckland Domain on December 14 from 7.30pm.
The X Factor New Zealand judge rocketed into the spotlight in 2009 after winning the seventh season of Australian Idol and has since recorded three albums.
He made his acting debut in the movie Mt Zion released earlier this year.
Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park is partly sponsored by Suburban Newspapers, publisher of the Auckland City Harbour News and is celebrating its 20th birthday.
This year’s star-studded cast includes Jackie Thomas, Benny Tipene and Anna Wilson, R n’ B artist Vince Harder, rocker Michael Murphy, solo artist Jae’O, singer/ songwriter Ainslie Allen and entertainer Drew Neemia.
Longtime supporters Jackie Clarke and Frankie Stevens are back, along with 600 performers.
‘‘They’re all set to deliver a magical mix of world class entertainment, enhanced by a laser light show and topped off by a spectacular fireworks finale,’’ show producer Jade Turrall says.
Entry is free but attendees will have the chance to donate money to support Surf Life Saving New Zealand throughout the night.
The alcohol-free event will be hosted by comedian Jeremy Corbett.
