Christmas Carols at Macquarie Hospital – Tuesday, 11 December 2018

It is this time of the year again when we go spread some Christmas cheer at our annual Carols singing evening, at Macquarie Hospital. Please Note, it is NOT the one at Macquarie University.

For the Benefit of our new members, this is a very rewarding experience, our audience (the patients & staff) at the hospital love our Christmas Carols’ singing & look forward to it.

Entry to Macquarie Hospital is best from Wicks Rd, Nth Ryde. Coming from Epping Road’s direction, the entry is on the left just passed Coxs Road.

The parking area is along Manning Rd, (an internal hospital road) Head towards a “semi-covered” parking area on the right.

Please aim to be there at 6 pm for a warm up, then the minibus will come to collect us about 6:30, you may wish to walk to the room, & remember parking is very limited near the room.

We will start singing at 7 pm & will be done by 8 pm, after which you may wish to stop & have a friendly chat with some of the patients.

Dress: Men & Women, bright Christmas coloured tops, and black slacks/trousers, and don’t forget your Christmas bells & baubles, etc, no flashing lights, please.

To put your name down for this event, please send your name & voice to Sami Kamal.

We really hope to get as many of you as possible along to our Carols this year,  I look forward to receiving your registrations soon.

We thank you in advance for your support.
