As we move into October tomorrow, with the end of the year in sight and the festive season fast approaching, it is with great heartache that we announce that we will not be proceeding with the Bendigo Christmas Concert for 2021.
At the close of 2020, our team of business and volunteer partners were defeated in trying to find a way to bring this event to life for the wonderful community of Bendigo. Unfortunately, after twelve months of highs and lows, we find ourselves in the same position.
We understand that this news will be disappointing for many, and you can trust us when we say that this was not a decision we enjoyed making.
We hope that you all join us in supporting our beneficiary partner: Bendigo Health Foundation, in whichever capacity you can. We are very lucky to have our Bendigo healthcare heroes keeping us safe through another wild, unprecedented year.
The biggest heartfelt ‘thank you’ goes out to all who have supported us; event partners, businesses, sponsors, volunteers, and most importantly, our audiences – without you, we wouldn’t be able to host such a spectacular, magical event.
Looking forward to 2022, we hope to bring the community back together with another joyous Bendigo Christmas Concert. We are dreaming of the day when we can all safely gather together to celebrate our regional city once more, and what a celebration it will be!
For now, we wish you all the best for the rest of 2021. May you and your families stay safe and, most importantly, have a very Merry Christmas.
