The Lord Mayor's Christmas Carols returned in 2023 spreading joy to the world with a dazzling evening of high kicks, high notes and hijinks.

Hosted by Queensland’s first lady of song, Naomi Price, this world-class evening of entertainment featured a cavalcade of stars from stage and screen including Dami Im, Johnny Manuel, Caroline O’Connor, Swing on This, Loren Hunter, Rebecca Cassidy, Jack Chambers, Irena Lysiuk, Alisha Todd and Brooke Schubert.

Audience favourites The Jingle Belles returned in 2023 under the direction of superstar chorographer Kate Wormald and of course – it wouldn’t have been Christmas without a VIP visit from Santa himself! 

It was a tree-mendous night for the whole family!

This year’s Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carols was more accessible than ever with Auslan interpretation, audio description, an accessible viewing platform, a dedicated Auslan area and the first ever low sensory zone at the Riverstage.

The Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carols proudly supports the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust.
