Pittwater Carols Afloat 2017

Friday 22nd December

7pm at Lovett Bay Boatshed

8.30pm at Church Point


Everyone is welcome

The performance date is Friday 22nd December with the first performance to be held at the Lovett Bay Boatshed  at 7 pm.

Boats can raft up or gather around the marina.

The choir then embarks on a ferry - courtesy of Penny Gleen and the Church Point Ferry Service - for the trip to Church Point.

The second performance will be on the old ferry wharf starting at 8.30 pm

A boat will be across the end of the wharf (as Tim Byrne’s was last year) with some of the choir on board.

Whether the audience is in the square, in the restaurant or on boats around and about they will hear everything.

The sound system will be the same as last year.

The Choirmaster is Rod Heard, as last year, and we hope the carols being sung will appeal to young and old

 Share the fun with family and friends .. bring along that silly hat, a picnic and the dogs.
