Event Details

The Norwood Christmas Pageant has become one of the City's most loved events.

Norwood Christmas Pageant 2020 cancelled

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and continuing physical distancing requirements, the Council has made the difficult decision to cancel both the 2020 Norwood Christmas Pageant and Twilight Carols.

In a special message to the community following the Council Meeting on Monday 7 September, Mayor Robert Bria expresses his disappointment, assuring the community that the decisions were not made lightly and with the health and safety of all volunteers, participants and attendees in mind.
