Lanyon Christmas Carols and Picnic
An evening of magical Christmas fun. Enjoy a picnic in the beautiful Lanyon gardens and sing along with the Sing Australia Choir and Tuggeranong Valley Band as the sun sets over the Brindabellas.
Take a tour of the homestead decorated for a nineteenth century Christmas and lit with candles. Children and families can participate in crafts and games from a bygone era, making a 19th century style spice scented Pomander to hang on the Christmas tree, a colourful Christmas crown to wear and play Victorian era games like hoopla and skittles.
Special guest MC Lish Fejer from ABC 666 radio
