The Christmas Cheer (Wassail) concerts are back again this Christmas and will be held on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 December at 7.30pm at the Bicentennial Hall, Sunrise Beach.

The inaugural concerts last year were a great success with full houses both evenings. Many people expressed a wish to come again this year because they enjoyed themselves so much.

It will be the same basic formula as last year -- lots of caroling washed down by copious quantities of alcoholic and non-alcoholic punch and fortified by plentiful amounts of Christmas fare (cake, mince pies and savories).

The Bicentennial Hall will again be transformed into a winter wonderland designed and inspired by the combined creative geniuses of Helen King and Ann Milland. Prepare to be surprised and thrilled by the results.

Just like last year, the audience will join in many of the carols. This time there will also be a small string ensemble as well as piano. The string ensemble will accompany the Chorale in Vaughan Williams' "Fantasia on Christmas Carols". Adrian King's daughter, Louise King, a world renowned cellist, will be part of this string ensemble.

Adrian also plans to introduce some light hearted Christmas songs.

There will be a few minor improvements this year: softer lighting; better use of microphones; more savory things to eat, and an even quicker table service during intervals.

If you want to get into the Christmas spirit, there is no better way than to attend one of these Christmas Cheer concerts. There is nothing else quite like it on the Sunshine Coast. It is a real innovation that adds another dimension to Christmas.

People are seated at tables ranging from 8 to 20 people at each table. If you are a member of a club, take advantage of this great opportunity to socialize. If you are a small group of friends or a couple or even a single person, you will soon feel at ease with others on your table who are all ready to have an enjoyable time together. There is an atmosphere of relaxed bonhomie about the whole occasion.
