Lights of Christmas, presented by Paynter Dixon and created and produced by AGB Events, will return to St Mary’s Cathedral for its 10th year.

The light projection event will continue to showcase community choirs and performers from across Sydney nightly at 7.30pm. Delicious food and beverage options will once again be available to buy on-site or you can pack your own picnic.

To mark the 10th anniversary of Lights of Christmas, the show will feature a sound and light experience honouring St Mary’s Cathedral. It will be transformed in a way not seen before, tracing the cathedral’s beautiful details using both light and colour.

The show will return to the original story upon which the customs and traditions of Christmas are based. Retold through the ages, scenes will be presented as a series of dioramas represented by spectacular Renaissance artworks.

A selection of Madonna and Child artworks will continue, featuring some of the magnificent Renaissance period artworks owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

For the second year, Lights of Christmas has partnered with St Vincent’s Hospital to raise funds for one of Sydney’s oldest and most respected medical institutions. Lights of Christmas will provide a platform to support the 2019 fundraising project – mental health. Through innovative telehealth and online outreach programs, St Vincent's Hospital's mental health services provide people in rural and remote regions of NSW with access to essential specialist healthcare services that would otherwise not be available to them.
