Free tickets to next week’s Seniors’ Christmas Concerts on the NSW north coast are still available, with former Australian Idol winner Casey Donovan set to be the headline act.
Minister for Seniors Natalie Ward said a full audience was expected for the two concerts, to be held at 11.30am and 3pm at Twin Towns Services Club on Thursday 16 December.
Approximately 760 tickets have been made available for each concert – around half were still available as of 9am today, so get in quick to secure yours!
“With COVID restrictions now lifted, this is a fantastic opportunity for our seniors to celebrate Christmas cheer together,” Mrs Ward said.
“Hundreds of our seniors will be able to enjoy the fun and festivities at each of the concerts, with 100 per cent capacity now allowed.”
Singer Casey Donovan will be joined by former ‘The Voice’ winner Harrison Craig, Nathan Foley of Hi-5 fame, indie-rock artist Imogen Clark and operatic tenor Lorenzo Rositano.
Ms Donovan said she is excited to perform live again, especially for such an appreciative audience.
“It’s always such a privilege to perform, especially giving back to our seniors in the form of music. It’s always such a treat and a joy and I hope to bring some Christmas cheer after a tough year,” Ms Donovan said.
The NSW Government has partnered with ClubsNSW to livestream the concerts at selected clubs across the state.
“After such a tumultuous year, this is a fantastic initiative from the government to boost people’s spirits. We are delighted to be invited to stream these Christmas Concerts in local clubs for patrons to enjoy,” said ClubsNSW CEO Josh Landis.
Those unable to attend the event in person can also enjoy the entertainment at home by registering through Humanitix to watch the livestream.
SBS will air the event on Christmas Day from 3:30pm. To register for free tickets, visit Twin Towns or phone 1800 014 014.
