Sydney’s iconic FREE public light projection event, The Lights of Christmas presented by Paynter Dixon, will be returning to St Mary’s Cathedral for its ninth year this December.
For 2018, The Lights of Christmas has also partnered with the St Vincent’s Curran Foundation to raise funds for one of Sydney’s oldest and most respected medical institutions, St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney. The Lights of Christmas will work to raise money for the Hospital’s Heart and Lung Transplantation program, with opportunities for the public to support a fundraising initiative throughout the event.
This year’s Show will appeal to all ages and will be split into three segments. It will start off with a visual feast of decorative patterns, inspired by Christmas, like a multi coloured kaleidoscope projected across the Cathedral facade.
The second segment will feature a story written and narrated by actor/writer Simon Pryce. Currently performing as the Red Wiggle, Pryce’s story explores the powerful impact of giving rather than receiving. The beautifully animated story will follow central character, Roger Robot who feels overlooked for new toys gifted at Christmas, on a journey to making friends, sharing love, and helping others through the gift of giving, that ends with a happy Christmas Day for all.
The final segment of the show will be a traditional series of Madonna and Child artworks. This segment annually honours the essence of the Christmas story and the beauty of the relationship between mother and child.
Where: St Mary's Cathedral, St Mary's Rd, Sydney
When: 5-25 December; Choirs 7.30pm; Lights 8.30pm-midnight
