2016 Brighton Community Christmas Carols

Admin - 25 November 2016

The Brighton Lions, together with the Hobart Baptist Churches, are set to bring you the fourth annual Brighton Community Christmas Carols.

The event will be held on Saturday 10 December at the usual location, Thomspson Oval in Pontville.

We have a kids program starting at 7:30 p.m. with the main event starting at 8:00 p.m.

This year will see performances by the internationally acclaimed Derwent Valley Concert Band as well as the Baptist Church Band and school choirs as well as a much anticipated visit from the one and only Santa Claus.

This is set the be the best Carols to hit the Brighton municipality yet, with a free bus service leaving from four locations in Bridgewater and Gagebrook to bring you to the carols and take you home again at the end of the event. See the information below for more details on the bus service.

We want everyone to have a good time so please remember that this is always a smoke, alcohol and drug free, family-friendly event.

Brighton Anzac Service
Members of the Lions Club of Brighton today attended the Centenary of Anzac service held at the newly completed Remembrance Park in Brighton. We were tasked with cooking the BBQ for after the ceremony and during the sporting events which followed. The weather held out, despite the forecast and we cooked and served a total of 45kg of sausages in just over an hour for the hundreds of people who attended. It was a lovely service and we certainly hope we can be involved in the commemorations again next year.
