Christmas in Victoria Harbour

06 Dec 2016

Saturday, December 10 is when the Docklands community comes together to celebrate Christmas in Victoria Harbour.

A full program of events is planned for the Library at the Dock, the adjacent community hub and Bullock Park.

The day kicks off at 10am with group laughter and meditation sessions to set the mood, run in conjunction with a kids cannoli workshop at Saluministi Café. At 10.30, the kids can pitch into a Christmas craft workshop and at 11.40 there is a “Jollity Bollywood” demonstration.

Rotary will be cooking up a storm from 11am until 2pm and Men in Suits will perform for an hour from 12.30pm.

At 1.30 residents can get involved with a special Bake Off and later enjoy La Nuit Blanche by Sunday Lounge Music from 3pm. And, if that wasn’t good enough, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will be putting on a special 30 minute performance from 4.30pm.

There will be a charity, wishing tree at the Knowledge Market. Donations will be distributed to local charities. Visit Knowledge Market by Friday, December 16 with a festive gift for someone less fortunate.

Melbourne North Police Station representatives will collect the gifts and oversee the distribution to those in need. The gifts don’t need to be wrapped.

There’s also a family photo-booth, coffee from the Wheely Good Café within the library and Santa is also rumoured to be making a special appearance.

12 Days of Christmas Light Show

Each evening, during the 12 Days of Christmas, watch the 888 Collins Street building come to life in a spectacular festive light display.

Beginning at sunset, and continuing until midnight, the festive show will play for five minutes every hour, on the hour. 

The special festive light show has been curated by the artist Bruce Ramus and will play in addition to the usual artistic weather light reflections.

The show will run every night between December 14 and December 25 between sunset and midnight.

Victoria Harbour project director Tim Campbell said: “We’re really pleased to be adding to the Christmas spirit  in Victoria Harbour with the 12 days of Christmas light show at 888 Collins Street.   The building is perfectly located for the community to experience the spectacular lights from Dock Square and the library.”
