Carols in Midland Park – Saturday 28 November, 5pm–7pm

’Tis the season for festive fun – all free on Lambton Quay

What is A Very Welly Christmas?

Welcome Santa and his friends to Lambton Quay at 12 noon each day then enjoy a whole host of free, family-friendly festive activities. 

On Saturday evening, bring your best singing voice to Midland Park for carol singing from 5pm to 7pm.

Get in the Christmas spirit with live entertainment, try out our ice skating rink, have a snowball fight, get creative in our kids’ craft centre, and have your photo taken with Santa. It’s also a great time to get started on your Christmas shopping! 

Right in the heart of Wellington

The iconic Lambton Quay is closed to all traffic for two days allowing A Very Welly Christmas to take over and provide the unique opportunity of roving the streets freely enjoying the shopping, hospitality and special Christmas activities. The event runs from The Old Bank Arcade, junction of Willis St all the way to the Supreme Court and the Bowen/Whitmore streets.
