November 2016
It's the most wonderful time of the year

Ignite your holiday spirit and step into the silly season as we light up the night with Christmas festivities.
 
Rokeby Road and its laneways will come alive with market stalls, food trucks, pop up bars and family entertainment at Subiaco's Christmas night of lights. Say g'day to Santa and don't miss the spectacle as we turn on the lights of Subiaco's eleven metre Christmas tree.
 
With four stages jam-packed with entertainment there’s more on offer than you could stuff in your Christmas stocking. 
 
Join the festivities on Thursday 24 November from 4pm.

A festive community 

The holiday season is a special time for the Subiaco community. 

This photograph of the Children’s Hospital in Subiaco taken in 1920 shows Christmas decorations adorning the ceiling and walls of ward 14. 

Despite hardship during the post-war period, hospital staff brought Christmas cheer to sick, young children in a resilient community that has always celebrated the festive season.
