Our Partners

Thank you to our Partners for making Carols possible 

A message from Clint Feuerherdt, CEO Transit Systems Group: At Torrens Transit, we pride ourselves in being involved in our communities, supporting opportunities and events where locals can come together and celebrate with their families and friends. We are thrilled to sponsor the Torrens Transit Carols by Candlelight in Elder Park, bringing this event to the community for free so that families can continue the tradition. Being an Adelaide resident, this cause struck a chord with me personally and I’m looking forward to attending the carols again this year with my own family.

I encourage you to come along to Torrens Transit Carols by Candlelight with family and friends, sing carols together, enjoy live entertainment under the stars and fundraise for a worthy cause. Plus, I also encourage families to catch PT to the event; it’s easy, cost effective and more sustainable.

A message from the Lord Mayor of Adelaide:

Council continues to be a proud supporting partner of the Torrens Transit Carols by Candlelight, located in one of our city’s most beautiful and iconic community spaces, Elder Park. This traditional gathering on the banks of the River Torrens / Karrawirra Parri is a delightful way for family and friends to spend time together to celebrate the festive season, in a city designed for life.

This Christmas, Adelaide is once again filled with magical and joyous experiences for everyone. Victoria Square / Tarntanyangga is even more spectacular this year with the festive event - Christmas Lights, Festive Nights - taking place from 13 to 22 December.

There is so much happening in the city at this time of year and I encourage you to find out the latest community event details, gift guides and festive food ideas at cityofadelaide.com.au/christmas.

Most importantly, Christmas is about spending time with loved ones and giving back to those less fortunate. On behalf of my family and City of Adelaide, I wish you peace, joy and a very Merry Christmas.

Sandy Verschoor

LORD MAYOR OF ADELAIDE

The joy of Christmas is only surpassed by sharing in this magical time of year with others.

Carols by Candlelight is a wonderful opportunity to come together, take time out from our busy lives and, quite literally, join the chorus of festivities.

As our oldest community carols, over 75 editions, this special event has fostered our state's sense of community and, while a fantastic event for families, has also allowed those who feel lonely at this time of year to join in the Christmas spirit.

The Sunday Mail is all about celebrating our community and increasing connectedness in our state. Every week we strive to inform, advocate and inspire South Australians and champion successes just like Carols by Candlelight. We are honoured to be involved with this long-standing event and hope for generations to come, it will remain an integral part of the festive season.

From all of us at the Sunday Mail, we wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.
