Lights of Christmas

Start:Thu 05 Dec 2019
End:Wed 25 Dec 2019
Celebrating 10 years as Sydney’s favourite free family Christmas event, Lights of Christmas presented by Paynter Dixon and created and produced by AGB Events, will return to St Mary’s Cathedral. From Thursday 5th December St Mary’s Cathedral Square will host choirs from 7.30pm and lights on from 8.30pm until 11pm. The Show will run up to and including Wednesday 25 December.

To mark the 10th anniversary of Lights of Christmas, the show will feature a sound and light experience honouring St Mary’s Cathedral by transforming it in a way not seen before, tracing the Cathedral’s beautiful details using light, colour and sound. Chosen by AGB Events’ CEO Anthony Bastic, it is titled Ascension, drawing on the ideals of religious architecture to deliver a spectacular yet delicately rendered design over the architectural features to create a sense of wonderment and awe, drawing the viewers spirits and sights up the 75m high spires to the heavens.

The show will also return to the original story upon which the customs and traditions of Christmas are based. Retold through the ages, scenes will be presented as a series of dioramas represented by spectacular Renaissance artworks.

A selection of Madonna and Child artworks will continue, featuring some of the magnificent Renaissance period artworks owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and for the first time also include images of the Holy family.

For the second year, Lights of Christmas will partner with the St Vincent’s Curran Foundation to raise funds, providing a platform for the public to support the Christmas fundraising.
