Lismore residents are being urged to pack the picnic rug and bring the whole family to celebrate the festive season at the 2017 Shopbaby Carols in the Heart this Sunday.
Popular Australian music group Justice Crew will be the headline act and there will be carol singing,
free face painting, a jumping castle and visit from Santa, and a spectacular fireworks display.
Council’s Tourism and Events Manager Mitch Lowe said he was actually a little surprised when
Justice Crew accepted the invitation to headline the carols evening, and he is expecting a big crowd
as a result.
The Justice Crew first appeared on Australia’s Got Talent in 2010 and have since had numerous hit
singles and toured widely across the country.
‘They were going to play Carols at the Domain in Sydney, but we got them instead!” Mitch laughed.
‘It’s awesome for Lismore and particularly for children who are fans of their music… it will really add
to the excitement of the night.”
Carols in the Heart will be held at Crozier Field in Lismore due to the redevelopment of Oakes Oval. It
is a free community celebration and people of all ages are welcome.
Gates open at 4.30pm with entertainment from 5.30pm, and food and refreshments will be
