Organisers of the Penrith City Carols have confirmed a virtual event will go ahead next weekend in lieu of the traditional in-person celebration.

It was announced in September that this year’s major carols event in Penrith would not go ahead due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

But organisers say they still wanted to spread the Christmas spirit this year, and will hold a virtual night of festive fun.

“The Carols bring so much joy to thousands of families here in Penrith and the
surrounding areas,” organisers said in a statement.

“People come from far and wide and spend the time with their family and friends. It’s an annual event that brings our community together. It just doesn’t feel right to sit at home that night! “

On Sunday, December 13 Julia Parashko, Jim Aitken and Nicki Morton will be
going live from the You Can Dance Studio in Emu Plains.

They have gathered local performers and dancers to bring some Christmas cheer into what has been a very trying year!

“We are calling out for people to join us via the streaming link at home
surrounded by family and friends,” the organisers said.

“Get a group together, sing along and dress up in Christmas theme! We are also inviting people to send in short video messages or photos so we can share the joy on our Facebook page!”

Join them live via the Penrith City Carols Facebook page and follow the link on
the night.
