Please note the cancellation of Carols in the Garden of Angels, scheduled to be held at Fawkner Memorial Park on Saturday 2 December.

In light of severe weather warnings forecast for Metropolitan Melbourne for the next 48-72+ hours, GMCT and Friends of the Garden of Angels have made the decision to cancel this popular and much-loved community event.

We deeply regret having to cancel this event and have not done so lightly but believe it is in the best interests of public and staff safety.

A number of other community and local council events which were scheduled to take place over the weekend have also been cancelled for similar reasons.

Notification of the cancellation is being posted on the GMCT Facebook page, GMCT website and onsite at the Garden of Angels, Fawkner Memorial Park.

We ask all members of the community to re-post this notice to ensure everyone is aware of the cancellation.

At this stage there is no intention to re-schedule this event.

We understand the community’s connection to this special event and look forward to supporting the Friends in the Garden of Angels to plan and host this event in 2018.

Thank you for your understanding.
