Lord Mayor's Seniors Christmas Parties

The Lord Mayor's Seniors Christmas Parties are an annual tradition inviting Brisbane seniors to celebrate the festive season at Brisbane City Hall with light refreshments and quality entertainment.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of The Lord Mayor's Seniors Christmas Parties. The events started in 2000 and have become a popular annual social event for Brisbane's seniors and their guests.

Join us to celebrate at one of the 20 day time shows or five evening shows held over 10 days. Enjoy food and drink prior to each show. This much-loved event is refreshed with a new line up every year that features a range of entertainers performing traditional and contemporary Christmas songs.

A pick-up and drop-off zone will be established on King George Square with access via the Ann Street side of Brisbane City Hall. This zone can only accommodate cars, taxis and mini buses. The drop off zone is exclusively for dropping off passengers to the event. It is a no standing zone and drivers are required to remain in their vehicle, unless assisting passengers.

For bus parking, we suggest the Ann Street bus park, just past Brisbane City Hall on the left-hand side.
