Premier’s Christmas Gala Concert - a chance to thank our seniors
Tickets to the 2010 Premier’s Christmas Gala Concert – The Christmas Spectacular – are now available.
Two concerts will be held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Wednesday 8 December at 10.30am and 2.30pm.
The Premier’s Christmas Gala Concerts – now in their 29th year – are funded by the NSW Government and organised by Ageing, Disability and Home Care.
Tickets are free for anyone over 60 and over 20,000 seniors from across the state are expected to attend.
"This is a small gesture from the NSW Government to thank our seniors for their hard work and service to the community," Premier Kristina Keneally said.
“Every year, tens of thousands of older Australians make an invaluable contribution through volunteer work, community service and as carers. Their experience, knowledge and wisdom should be celebrated.
“Tickets to the Christmas Gala Concerts are always in high demand so I’d encourage everyone to get in early and book online.”
Minister for Ageing and Disability Services Peter Primrose said tickets were strictly limited to a maximum of four per person.
“In March, the Premier’s Seniors Week Gala Concerts booked out in just an hour and a half,” Mr Primrose said.
“The quickest and easiest way to book is online at www.ticketmaster.com.au.
“Tickets can also be booked in person at any of the participating NSW Ticketmaster outlets or by phoning 1300 855 501 for the cost of a local call.”
Wheelchair, limited mobility and hearing impaired tickets are available by phoning 1300 855 501, pressing 2 then press 9.
People booking online for the first time are recommended to create a user account before the tickets become available.
The line up for this year’s Christmas Gala Concert series is still being finalised. Previous performers at the Premier’s Christmas Gala Concert include Julie Anthony, Jonathan Biggins, Gina Jeffreys, Melinda Schneider, Fiona O’Loughlin, Alexander Lewis, and David Somerville.
