    St Mary’s Cathedral will again be the centrepiece of Sydney’s public Christmas celebrations, with Lights of Christmas presented by PAYCE returning to capture the imagination of audiences with a spectacular light and sound show.

     The 2015 event acknowledges the United Nations’ International Year of Light, with the performance themes prompting the audience to reflect on how powerful a shining light can be. A traditional Christmas carol layered with meaning will be re-introduced to the public during the mid-section of the display; The Holly and The Ivy is set to encourage children to immerse themselves in the festive spirit. As is tradition, glorious images of the Madonna and Child will adorn the Cathedral’s façade, rounding out the sound and light show with symbolic references to how both are guiding lights to mankind.

     The massive 75m façade of the Cathedral will be illuminated with a free display of sound and light, storytelling the themes of Christmas using Vivid-style 3D projections. The projections provide a stunning backdrop for a public celebration of Christmas on the forecourt of St Mary’s, using interactive storytelling and a beautiful combination of creativity and technology to connect with the audience. Prior to the show commencing each evening, choirs from across the city perform live Christmas carols on the steps of Sydney’s grandest Cathedral.

     Lights of Christmas presented by PAYCE has been a much-loved event on the Sydney Christmas calendar since 2009, providing a destination for Sydney-siders to gather loved ones together in a public space and celebrate the season of peace, joy and goodwill.

     The Lights of Christmas is created by AGB events, hosted by the Archdiocese of Sydney, with Presenting Sponsor PAYCE, Education Partner the Australian Catholic University and supported by Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria.
