This is your night! Gather your family and friends and join Santa for the 2019 UWA Christmas Concert in support of Lifeline WA. The UWA Conservatorium of Music, national artists and community choirs will perform all your favourite Christmas songs.

So pack a picnic, don your Santa hat and bring the whole family along for a fun-filled festive musical evening!

There will be a selection of tasty snacks available from local food trucks and the University Club of WA will be open if you want to grab a pre-show drink. Please bring something to sit on (chairs only permitted in marked areas).
