Due to inclement weather that is forecast for this weekend, we have decided to postpone our event until next Saturday night, 22 December.

We apologise for any inconvenience, but want to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all who attend the Carols on the Hill event.

If you plan to join us next weekend, you can use your existing tickets – there is no need to reserve new tickets.

Thanks for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you to Guilford Young College Oval in Hobart on Saturday 22 December from 5.30pm.

Tickets now available to Carols on the Hill

Tickets to the Archdiocese of Hobart’s Carols on the Hill event in Hobart are now available to order online.

Supported by the City of Hobart, Carols on the Hill is a free, traditional outdoor carols event specifically designed for families to share in the joyful spirit of Christmas. The event will be staged at the Hobart campus of Guilford Young College on Saturday, December 22 from 6pm to 9pm, with gates opening at 5.30pm. The oval is secure and can comfortably hold around 1200 people, making it an ideal venue for families with children.

Compered by Tasmanian-born speaker and author Sam Clear, Carols on the Hill will feature local group and individual performances, as well as community carol singing. The lighting of candles as dusk descends on the city is sure to make for a memorable carols event. The Sultan Holdings community tree will offer people the opportunity to donate gifts and non-perishable food items to support those in need this Christmas, and families are invited to light a candle and say a prayer at the Nativity scene.
