The Kardinia Park Stadium Trust is excited to work with the Y Service Club of Geelong to host Geelong’s biggest Carols by Candlelight yet.
Due to re-development work at Johnstone Park, the event will be held at GMHBA Stadium, ensuring the Carols, which have been a Geelong Christmas Eve tradition since 1965 will go ahead.
Event organiser, Noel Hooper believes the announcement will be a boost for the community and expects to see a large turnout “With this year’s Carols being held in such an iconic and accessible venue, we hope to get an extra 2000 – 3000 more people come along” Mr Hooper said.
CEO of the Kardinia Park Stadium Trust, Michael Brown welcomed the announcement. “The Trust is looking forward to welcoming the Geelong community to GMHBA Stadium to embrace the festive spirit and enjoy a great night of entertainment” he said. “I would like to thank the City of Greater Geelong for connecting the Trust with the Y Service of Geelong. We have a magnificent Stadium in Geelong, and we are proud to host such a wonderful tradition.”
The 53rd Geelong Carols by Candlelight will feature a host of talented local performers soon to be announced.
Demonstrating the Stadiums flexibility, this summer GMHBA Stadium will also host The Matildas vs China Women’s Football, Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Sixes Big Bash Cricket and Melbourne Victory vs Central Coast Mariners in the A-League.
