article imagePhoto Essay: 30th Carols in The Domain concert in Sydney Special

By Richard Milnes     Dec 23, 2012 in Entertainment
Sydney - About 100,000 people are estimated to have attended the Carols in the Domain, in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens. It is a free outdoor Christmas concert in its 30th year.
The event was so popular that security had to stop letting people in, even before the start of the concert.
It was very much a family occasion; all age ranges were represented and the atmosphere was very friendly.
Sometimes people joined in the singing and occasionally got up to dance, most noticeably when the original Wiggles took to the stage with some catchy tunes for what was said to be their last ever live TV performance (the event was broadcast by Channel 7).
NSW Police statement
In a NSW Police media release before the Carol concert, Acting The Rocks Local Area Commander, Acting Superintendent Tony Bell, said the event is a great opportunity for everyone to get into the festive spirit.
“Carols in the Domain is a family-friendly event and police will be conducting Operation Carols 2012 to target anti-social behaviour,” Acting Superintendent Bell said.
“We will focus on drunk and disorderly behaviour in and around the event precinct, as well as assist with crowd control.
“We are expecting tens of thousands of people to attend and we want everyone to look out for themselves and each other.”
