Carols by Candlelight returns to Music Bowl

CAROLS by Candlelight will return to its 'traditional home' at the Rockhampton Music Bowl in December, the first time since 2011 that Carols by Candlelight has been held at the venue.

In addition to the Music Bowl, a second Carols by Candlelight will be held at the Pilbeam Theatre on Sunday evening.

Rockhampton Region Mayor Margaret Strelow said that she was looking forward to Carols by Candlelight returning to its 'traditional home.'

"For many Rockhampton people, Carols by Candlelight is synonymous with the Music Bowl. Many of us have fond memories of Carols there over the years, so it will be nice to return to the venue," she said.

The Mayor said that while the outdoor venue would suit many people who love the outdoor, under the stars atmosphere, some might prefer the comfort of an indoors concert.

"This is why I also wanted to have a concert at the Pilbeam Theatre. Last year, Carols by Candlelight was forced into the theatre due to the weather. It was such a great show that this year a second Carols by Candlelight will be held at the Pilbeam Theatre."

Proceeds from both concerts will go to the Rockhampton Women's Shelter

Carols By Candlelight will be held at the Rockhampton Music Bowl on Saturday December 12 at 7pm, with gates opening at 5pm. Entry to the Music Bowl concert is by gold coin donation. Food and drink will be on sale. Off-street parking is available, with changed traffic conditions near the entrance to the Music Bowl.

A second Carols by Candlelight Concert will be held at the Pilbeam Theatre on Sunday, December 13 at 7pm. The Pilbeam Theatre concert is a ticketed event with tickets priced at adults $15, pensioners $12, children $10 and families (2 adults and 2 children) $45.
