A Christmas e-Carol

Christmas - e- Carol Aurora

A 12 Days of Christmas sing-a-long

Last year we launched our own 12 Days of Christmas carol written and performed by local musicians including Rebecca Barnard.  You can check out last year's carol below.

Our personalised rendition gives a shout out to each of our suburbs and gives the community an opportunity to show our traders some Christmas cheer. 

You can get into the Christmas spirit by singing along to the lyrics about the suburb where you live, record it and send it to us.

The clip will be edited together with all the other submissions to be part of our 12 Days of Christmas video clip for 2021.
