ALLISON LANGDON AND DAVID CAMPBELL TO HOST CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24, LIVE AT 8.00PM ON NINE
Allison Langdon will make her Carols by Candlelight debut this Christmas Eve when she joins David Campbell to co-host Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight live from the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
Together they’ll welcome a star-studded lineup of artists to perform at Australia’s favourite Christmas Eve tradition.
“I’m excited to be joining David as the host of Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight. With two small children, Christmas is a big deal in my house. I have always loved watching the program from my couch at home, and I am thrilled to be able to play a role in one of Australia’s most loved Christmas Eve traditions,” Allison Langdon said.
“I can’t wait to see the great performances and help in raising money for services for children and families who are blind or have low vision.”
David Campbell said: “I love this time of year, and what better way to finish the year than having Allison join in the festivities. Seeing the candles being held up in the air to the kids singing along in the crowd, it is always a wonderful night of Christmas celebrations.”
The hosts will be joined by Carols regulars Anthony Callea, Tim Campbell, Marina Prior, Silvie Paladino, David Hobson and Denis Walter who continue to wow audiences each year with their brilliant talents. Many more exciting performers will be announced in the lead-up to the event.
2019 marks the 82nd year of Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight. And the milestones are continuing as Nine celebrates its 40th year of telecasting this beloved live event, which is in its 60th year of presentation from the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
