CAROLS BY THE BEACH
THE annual Kingscliff Christmas carols are on the move, but not too far, and will be held for the first time at Rowan Robinson Park on Tuesday evening.
Organised by the Kingscliff Lions Club, the Kingscliff Carols by the Coast have been an institution in the town for nearly 40 years, bringing the community together to celebrate the festive season.
The free carols, starting at 6.50pm (NSW), will feature more groups this year, and musical director Geoff Dart said the new venue would provide better viewing for the crowd and more space on stage for the performers.
“We will again have a number of school groups, including the Lindisfarne Anglican College, Cudgen Primary, St Anthony’s Kingscliff Primary and Kingscliff High and the Kingscliff Academy of Arts,” he said.
“There will be dance groups and the Melody Makers leading the carol singing and rising star Imogen Rain will also be performing.
“We are excited about performing in a new area and have our fingers crossed for fine weather.”
There will be food and drinks available from 6pm and Santa will be paying a visit at 8pm (NSW).
