Getting in the Xmas Spirit

Christmas is right around the corner and that means it is time for the Glencore Upper Hunter Christmas Spectacular.

On Saturday December 15 make sure you are at Muswellbrook Race Course for this free Christmas concert where you can enjoy all your favourite Christmas carols.

Headlining is Australian Idol winner Damien Leith who will be supported by Charlotte Rhiane, John Morris, The Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music Orchestra, Mass Schools Choir, Towns Choir and the Muswellbrook High Stage Band.

Last year the event attracted thousands of people from right across the Hunter region. PowerFM Brekky Show host Glenn ‘Stolzy’ Stolzenhein said it’s the biggest event on the Radio Hunter Valley calendar. “Each year the concert gets bigger and bigger! This is the year. The performers, the sound, the entire set up… Bigger and better!”

You won’t be going hungry either with plenty of food available for purchase or bring along your own picnic with your family and friends. Browse through local market stalls and don’t forget to bring your insect repellent.

Local businesses are getting right behind it as well with Big Lift Cranes General Manager Billie Sharpe snatching up the opportunity to support a great community event. “We are so excited to be a part of the Glencore Christmas Spectacular this year. We don’t get many events like this locally, so it is so important for local businesses and the community to really get behind it and support it to ensure it comes back bigger and better every year. I’m trying to keep things quiet for now, but Big Lift Cranes has some BIG things planned for the day. We look forward to seeing everyone there.”

This free community event is only possible due to the support and generosity of those who make it happen. Glencore, Upper Hunter Automotive, The Muswellbrook and District Workers Club, Muswellbrook Telstra Shop, Muswellbrook Race Club, Coates Hire, Muswellbrook Shire Council, The Chop Shop, Keldan Automotive, Penski Power Systems, Stellar Recruitment, Big Lift Cranes and Pacific Brook Christian School have all given generously for the benefit of our community.
