Led by stage actress and singer Naomi Price, this year’s Carols boast an extraordinary lineup of performers. The incredible Dami Im, the legendary Caroline O’Connor AM in her Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carols debut, fan favourite Johnny Manuel, Loren Hunter, Brisbane choreographer, singer, actor and dancer Jack Chambers, and the sensational soprano Rebecca Cassidy will take the stage in show-stopping acts.

Adding to the brilliance is the appearance of Swing on This featuring Luke Kennedy, Matt Lee, Ben Mingay and Bert LaBonté. Joining forces, Irena Lysiuk, Alisha Todd and Brooke Schubert promise to dazzle, along with the return of The Jingle Belles.

Viewers will be immersed in the wonder of Christmas through the incredible talents of these Queenslanders – and of course, Santa Claus is coming to town too. Beyond the stellar performances, these first-class acts unite not only in the spirit of Christmas but also to support the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust.

Melissa Downes said:

“Christmas is a magical time of the year, and hosting The Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carols remains one of my favourite events – the atmosphere is unmatched.

“It’s the best way to get into the Christmas spirit, singing along to local artists and sharing the magic with those joining in at home, and it never gets old. Carols truly is a community-driven event and a joyous start to the Christmas season.”
