'The Lights of Christmas' will illuminate the front of St Mary`s Cathedral again this year as the dazzling light show entertains and enchants Sydney residents.

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

The St Mary's Cathedral facade is again to be the centerpiece of the stunning free light and sound show 'The Lights of Christmas' created by AGB Events. As the iconic Sydney building gets set to light up like a Christmas tree and capture the imagination of Sydney audiences, The Lights of Christmas presented by PAYCE will be available from 8 – 25th of December.

PAYCE and AGB Events turn on the Lights of Christmas.

Presented by PAYCE, the Lights of Christmas has become something of a tradition among the residents of Sydney. This much-loved event has been part of the Sydney Christmas event calendar since 2009 and provides a destination for the folk of Sydney to gather with family, friends and strangers in a public space and celebrate a season of peace, joy and goodwill.

PAYCE Managing Director, Mr Brian Boyd, said he was thrilled to be part of such a magical event for everyone to enjoy. "The Lights of Christmas embraces the same spirit of community to which PAYCE is committed through its own projects," said Mr Brian Boyd.

"We are proud to participate in such a worthy project that with a little imagination brings the true spirit of Christmas to life." said Brian Boyd.

"It is inspiring to see how The Lights of Christmas brings joy to hundreds of thousands of Sydneysiders. Bringing people together, the diversity of the Sydney community really comes to the fore in front of the cathedral every year in celebration," said Mr Boyd.

PAYCE General Manager, Mr Dominic Sullivan said, "PAYCE is delighted to be associated with such a remarkable event for families and friends, one that embraces the same spirit of community with which PAYCE is committed to delivering through its own endeavors".

Christmas fantasy comes to Sydney`s St Mary`s

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?

The light show projections provide a stunning backdrop for a public celebration of Christmas integrating creativity and technology to connect with the audience creating a stunning and beautiful interactive storytelling experience.

Bring the whole family to view the Fantasia-style animation of Tchaikovsky`s classic The Nutcracker Suite. The magnificent facade of St Mary's Cathedral will be transformed into a magical castle by the light and sound projections, marvel as Clara and her friends play and dance their way through the charming and classic Christmas favorite.

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 and following The Nutcracker Suite, spectacular images of the Madonna and Child from some of histories great art masters will adorn the Cathedral's façade.
