Carols by Candlelight

In association with the Town of Bassendean, each year we host the Carols By Candlelight (or Carols at the Oval) for the community of Bassendean.

This is usually held on the Sunday evening before Christmas Day. 

Last year was the first time the Carols had been held at Steel Blue Oval in Bassendean, and we are looking forward to going back there again this year - sitting on the lush green grass, in front of one of the old football stands as a back-drop!
