Leslie Park to twinkle with Christmas spirit

COUNTRY music star James Blundell will be the headline act at the Warwick Carols in the Park on Sunday.

From 5pm families will pack into Leslie Park with picnic rugs and chairs to enjoy a night of Christmas carols under the stars.

Blundell will be joined by his brother, Mayor Peter Blundell, on stage, as well as a host of local talent.

Cr Blundell said the carols were always a fantastic evening.

"For all those who love to sing along, the words to all the carols will be projected on a big screen and printed programs will also be available on the night," he said.

"There will be a visit from Santa and his helpers to delight the kids, along with talented local storyteller Carmel Wooding, spreading the Christmas cheer, and this year there will be a collection with funds raised to be donated to The Salvation Army."

The three-hour program features traditional carols and up-beat Christmas songs by the Warwick Choral Society, Blue Violets, David and Sarah Hume, Emma Bell and Ebony Wickham.

Cr Blundell praised the team involved in the event.

"We're very fortunate to have a team of locals on board - Susan Needer as musical co-ordinator and Andy Wilmott, from Soular Music, and Tracey Gosney, from Top Beat Entertainment, who will look after all of our sound, lighting and staging requirements," he said.

There will be plenty of food and drinks available on the night.
