Now in its eighteenth year, the annual Glenhaven Carols by Candlelight has become a fixture of Christmas in The Hills! Each year Glenhaven Oval fills with thousands of residents to celebrate the festive season.

“We are truly grateful for what the Carols event has become and the support the community shows each year” said Annie Bradley, member of the Glenhaven Carols Organising Committee.

“Each year the community comes together on this great night to relax and celebrate. Proceeds from the event are donated to great organisations like the Glenhaven Rural Fire Brigade” she said.

The Glenhaven Carols by Candlelight Committee and the Rotary Club of Glenhaven organise the event that also showcases local talent, further promoting a sense of community. This year Louis Carr Real Estate Castle Hill/Glenhaven has also come on board as a Platinum Sponsor.

Each year the Glenhaven Oval takes on a “Carnivale” atmosphere with rides and amusements as well as stage performances by local dance groups and young entertainment professionals who live in the area. The finale of the evening is a fireworks spectacular. The event draws up to 3,000 people to the oval.

On Sunday 9 December there will be food, rides and attractions with the fun starting at 4.30pm. Santa will be coming to town and the firework finale starts at 8.50pm.

“We look forward to seeing all the friendly faces of Glenhaven again on 9 December at the Glenhaven Oval on Glenhaven Road” Ms Bradley said.
