Changes to events and gatherings
Following NSW Health advice, we are bringing some face-to-face events back while others remain suspended. Please check the Changes to events and gatherings page for the most up to date information.




Thursday, 2 December 2021 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

The Northern Beaches Council's Christmas Choral Concert spectacular is back for 2021! The popular, free entry community event will start the festive season off with a bang!

Everyone’s much-loved carols will be back at Manly Oval, with a Christmas choir and a range of musicians bringing you some of your favourite carols throughout the evening. We will even have a visit from Santa himself!

Bring your picnic blanket and feast or choose to order from our delicious food vendors operating from 5 to 8.30pm. Please note there will be no glass permitted at the event. 

Gates open at 5pm, with the concert starting at 6.30pm. In line with current NSW Government health orders, capacity is limited, so come early to secure your spot. Once we reach capacity, we cannot admit any more patrons. A COVID Safety Plan will be in place. 

We want everyone to be safe at our Christmas events - please make sure to pick up a free ID wristband for your children at entry gates or from the information tent. 

We look forward to bringing this event back in 2021 and celebrating Christmas with you!

Please note dogs are not permitted at this event.

As a condition of entry, in line with current NSW Government Health Orders, if you are 16 or over you are required to produce a valid proof of your vaccination upon check in at the event. We ask that you please do not attend if you are feeling unwell. 

Due to the restrictions on events that were in place at the time we confirmed the Christmas Choral Concert would be proceeding, only a small group of choristers were selected for the Community Choir to ensure we adhered to all NSW Public Health Orders.
