Carols by Candlelight - 11th Edition

In Gozo, the upcoming Christmas season will open its festivities with ‘Carols by Candlelight’. In fact the eleventh edition of this much acclaimed Christmas event will be held on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th December.

Along the years, ‘Carols by Candlelight’ remained that Christmas event which music and Christmas lovers cannot afford to miss. Many Maltese residents cross over to Gozo specifically to attend for this event. Foreign residents, who are familiar with this event, do their utmost to attend before they join their families abroad to spend the season holidays together.

On seeing so much joy on the faces of all those who attend, the Organising Committee take care of all the detail to present another unforgettable Christmas evening. This year, the Artistic Direction is in the hands of the local artist Paul Stellini.

The evening will start with the Christmas concert at St. Augustine’s Church in Victoria. The programme will include Classical and traditional pieces together with some contemporary compositions. Then right after the concert, there will be a dinner in the cloister, adjacent to the church, which will be decorated for the occasion. The food will be freshly prepared by the Ta’ Frenċ chefs, under the mastery of Chef Mario Schembri. Moreover, in the anti-room leading to the cloister, there will be an exhibition.

The proceeds of this soirée will be donated to Ġużeppa Debono Home which is a pro-life entity.
