The City of Mitcham and the Flinders Private Hospital are delighted to present one of the highlights of the Mitcham calendar, the annual Carols by the Creek. 

Celebrate Christmas at this joyful free family event with lots of singing and family entertainment. 

It’s a silver theme! In 2017 we are celebrating our Carols event by inviting you to join us and wear something silver or sparkly (think lots of tinsel!). 

A delicious feast awaits you with a BBQ by Mitcham Lions and pancakes, tea and coffee by Centennial Park Sea Scouts available for purchase as well other stalls to keep you entertained. 

The kids will love the free face painting and the popular camel and pony rides

International tenor and esteemed Music Director, Brian Gilbertson will be returning to host Carols by the Creek. Brian made his operatic debut in Vienna with the Vienna Kammeroper and will be performing solo and leading the community carols. 

Carols will be headlined by Adelaide’s hippest swing band, Swing and Tonic. With a sound focused on the sounds of artists like Frank Sinatra, the Andrews Sisters and Glen Miller, you will love their energy and beautiful renditions. 

We also introduce our emerging, young talent, vocalist and also accomplished songwriter, pianist and actress, Nava Revalk

Popular children’s entertainer, Tinsel the Reindeer will be performing an interactive Christmas Show full of song and dance sure to entertain the kids. 

Our very own Mitcham City Brass together with the Australian Girls Choir and Scotch College Pipes and Drums will be providing musical support during the evening. 

Community and school choirs will begin the entertainment at 5.30pm and our Carols will commence at 6.45pm. 

Candles are available for purchase on the night from parishioners of local churches with proceeds going to local chaplaincy programs. Performers drawn from local churches and schools will again stage a nativity scene, complete with live animals. 

We look forward to seeing you! Don’t forget to find us on Facebook
