Celebrating Culinary Excellence on Tasmania’s North West Coast
Burnie Carols Online

Burnie Carols Online

Carols By Candlelight events have been cancelled all over the State, including the Devonport’s Carols By Candlelight, which is annually hosted by the Soroptimists International.  We are pleased to be able to promote the Burnie Carols By Candlelight as they go online.
From the crew at Burnie Carols By Candlelight:
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and having reviewed the current gathering restrictions and compliance obligations, the Burnie Carols by Candlelight management team, in partnership with the Pastors of the Churches of Burnie, are taking the 2020 Burnie Carols ONLINE!
Tune in on the evening of Sunday 20 December 2020 for the video premiere of the 2020 Burnie Carols Online Program via YouTube and Facebook!
Hosting a gathering? Tag us on your socials with #burniecarols2020 **
** Don’t forget that your gathering MUST abide by the restrictions applicable for where you are watching from – see the Tassie household gathering requirements below **
As outlined in our Mission Statement, Burnie Carols aims to provide an opportunity for the people of Burnie to gather together and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and build community by singing carols with family and friends.
This year will be no different – but different! We invite the community of Burnie to “gather in place” – in their homes, churches, clubs, schools, or favourite local restaurant to join us on the evening of Sunday 20 December as we premiere the Burnie Carols program via online streaming channels. These satellite gatherings may be smaller than our normal night together in the park, but the sense of community spirit will be as strong as ever.
Burnie Carols has always been a free event, and this was not something the management team wanted to compromise on simply because life has changed. The wellbeing of the community is our highest priority, as well as the wise management of the resources that are generously donated to run this community event each year. Officials cannot currently advise if or when gathering restrictions will change in Tasmania, and creating a “covid-normal” event comes with many increased expenses. The cost of compliance, hygiene and safety measures, alongside the decrease of revenue due to crowd number limitations, qualified the decision to move to an online format this year.
** Tasmanian Household Gatherings:
Gatherings at households – including shacks – are currently limited to up to 40 people at any one time, not including residents of the household.
You can travel and stay anywhere within Tasmania, but you must comply with the restrictions on gatherings and household visits.
You should continue to maintain physical distancing at all times when you are out (staying at least 1.5 metres from other people), wash your hands regularly and cover coughs and sneezes. You should not visit others or have visitors to your home if you are unwell.
