Tickets also available at the gate.

The concert runs from 7.15 to 8.30pm in the Sound Shell, a beautiful outdoor amphitheatre on our site at Barragga Bay. Gates are open from 6pm so you can bring a picnic dinner, enjoy the site plus pre-show entertainment by The Candelo Brass Ensemble and The Friday Choir, and say hello to Santa!

Enjoy a magical evening with all of your favourite Christmas carols to sing along with, plus gospel, sacred and original songs written just for this event. There will be over 60 voices on stage supported by a six-piece band of brilliant professional musicians all returning home for Christmas (including Kade Brown, David Hewitt, Robyn Martin, Matt Dixon, Kate Burke and Pete Wild), plus guest appearances from brass players led by Helen Gill and soloist Marie Louise Le Brun, a rising star in the Australian music scene from the South Coast. We have fantastic choirs on the NSW Far South Coast, and singing on stage will be The Bega St Choir, That Bunch of Singers, HeartSong and Bega Valley Children’s Choir, as well as students from Bermagui Primary, Bermagui Pre-School and Little Lambs Pre-School.

Things to know and bring...

Refreshments on offer include sausage sizzle, juice stand and home made icy poles. Bring your own picnic dinner and a bottle of bubbly if you like, otherwise, there’ll be food and refreshments available and music to enjoy before the show.

This event is brought to you by The Bega Valley Shire Council, Bermagui Chamber of Commerce, Bermagui Pre-­School, Bermagui Primary School, Little Lambs Pre-School, Anglican Church Bermagui, South East Arts, Four Winds and our wonderful volunteers.

NATURE'S CONCERT HALL

Four Winds Festival is more than just exquisite music. It’s more than just a gathering of some of the finest musicians from around the world.

It’s also about a very special place we call Nature’s Concert Hall; 30 acres of open and wooded parkland, an open-air amphitheatre with grassed tiers that drop gently down to a stage framed by a lake that reflects the changing colours of the sky and is home to the frogs that sing along.

The new Windsong Pavilion, a purpose-built indoor recital hall, is now ready and available for year-round events and performances. The completion of the Windsong Pavilion and the Sound Shell marks a new beginning for Four Winds and the opportunity for us to secure our place in Australia’s musical life and identity.

The site will become an important centre for our community, the region and beyond, where world-class cultural events will play out against the backdrop of our beautiful surroundings.
