12 – 25 December 2013
The façade of St Mary’s Cathedral will bring the spirit of Christmas to Sydney when the enchanting light show, Lights of Christmas, returns to delight audiences for the festive season from 12-25 December.
A Sydney Christmas tradition enjoyed by tens of thousands of people, the 2013 Lights of Christmas projections will explore light as a symbol of celebration, from twinkling Christmas lights to candle flames, sending Christmas cheer throughout the city and around the world.
Hosted by the Archdiocese of Sydney and AGB Events in partnership with the Australian Catholic University and supported by Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria, the projections will illuminate the southern façade of the statuesque building that stands at 75 metres high and 33 metres wide, from 8.30pm, accompanied by a festive soundtrack.
His Eminence Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney said, “Christmas is a time to come together with friends and family to celebrate the gifts of life and love, and we welcome everyone down to enjoy these stunning illuminations throughout the festive season at St Mary’s Cathedral.”
Created and produced by AGB Events with Vivid Light Festival Director, Anthony Bastic as Creative Director, Lights of Christmas will take visitors on a journey, from the story of the nativity to the hope and excitement on the night before Christmas, concluding with a celebration of the Madonna and child.
