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.

The Lord Mayor's Seniors Christmas Parties started in 2000 and have become a popular annual social event for Brisbane's seniors and their guests.

Join us at one of the 11 shows held over five 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.
