Celebrate the Season

Join us at the Lights of Christmas at St Mary’s Cathedral every night from the 8th until 25th of December.

AGB Events are thrilled that the Lights of Christmas public celebration we created in 2010 continues to bring joy to so many people.

Each year we take one of the Christmas themes of Peace, Joy and Goodwill and develop an animated light show that entertains and inspires.

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

The theme for the 2016 Lights of Christmas presented by PAYCE is Joy to the World . The show that will adorn Sydney’s grandest cathedral, St Mary’s will feature animation interpreting the timeless Christmas tale of the Nutcracker Suite along with a glorious selection of Madonna and Child images painted by some of the great Masters.

Lights of Christmas presented by PAYCE will run from 8-25 December 2016 – including Christmas Night. Starting each evening at 7:30pm with a choir performance – the light show will commence at 8.30pm and continue through until midnight.


The Lights of Christmas is created by AGB Events, hosted by the Archdiocese of Sydney, with Presenting Partner PAYCE and Principal Partner the Australian Catholic University. We would also like to acknowledge our Government Partner, the City of Sydney, Technical Partner, Technical Direction Company (TDC) and Supporting Partner Catholic Super.
