Experience the magic of Christmas at the 'Lights of Christmas' presented by PAYCE.

The St Mary's Cathedral forecourt will again be the centerpiece of a stunning free light and sound show created by AGB Events.

As the iconic St Mary`s Cathederal lights up Sydney and captures the imagination of audiences with Lights of Christmas presented by PAYCE from 8 – 25 December.

Community Christmas Celebrations - A Time for Family Traditions and Goodwill to All - Brian Boyd.

Brian Boyd of PAYCE said he was thrilled to play a role in a celebration for Sydney locals which embody the level of community spirit which PAYCE believes is paramount in this age.

"The Lights of Christmas celebrations have brought joy and goodwill to many Sydney locals. I am energised when such a diverse community of peoples comes together at this magnificent cathedral to celebrate the season. We are proud to partner such a worthwhile event." said Brian Boyd.

Bring the whole family to view the Fantasia-style animation of the classic Christmas favourite The Nutcracker Suite. Watch as Clara and her friends play and dance around the magnificent facade of St Mary's Cathedral which will be transformed into a magical castle with light and sound projections.

The projections provide a stunning backdrop for a public celebration of Christmas using interactive storytelling and a beautiful combination of creativity and technology to connect with the audience. This free event now in its eighth year is a Christmas calendar must for children, parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, and travellers alike. Should we mention all ages?

At the commencement of the show at 7:30pm each evening, choirs from across Sydney will perform live Christmas carols on the steps of Sydney's grandest Cathedral. The classic and timeless Joy To The World is the 2016 theme song which is guaranteed to get visitors in the Christmas spirit.

Continuing its beloved tradition, spectacular images of the Madonna and Child from some of the great arts masters will adorn the Cathedral's façade following The Nutcracker Suite.

Lights of Christmas presented by PAYCE has been a much-loved event on the Sydney Christmas calendar since 2009, providing a destination for Sydneysiders to gather loved ones in a public space and celebrate the season of peace, joy and goodwill. Last year's Lights of Christmas attracted crowds of over 300,000 people and this year is expected to see an even greater boost in attendance.
