Who says all Christmas events are cancelled?

And of course, no festive celebration is complete without a visit from Santa Claus!

Our performers will belt out the best Christmas songs, but for the final number we need your help!

Let us know which Christmas song is your favourite, and the one with the most votes will be performed as the final number on the night where everyone (including you and your family) can sing along!

PLUS, during the Coast Christmas Singalong event, listen out for Santa’s code word, because the next day during Coast Breakfast you could win a Christmas hamper plus $200 cash!

Note: Coast Christmas Singalong will be sign-language interpreted. 

Jackie Clarke

She has starred in Rock Follies Forever with Jennifer Ward Lealand and Laura Daniel for the Auckland Live Cabaret Season, performed her own solo show Jackie Goes Prima Diva, been a member of Jubilation Choir, toured with rock ‘n roll royalty like Dave Dobbyn and Annie Crummer, starred in musicals such as Once, Mamma Mia and Anything Goes, and sang in the annual Coca Cola Christmas in the Park concerts for many years.  Jackie says she has no trouble singing for 100,000's of people, but can’t parallel park to save herself.

Modern Māori Quartet

The multi-award-winning Modern Māori Quartet brings the concept of a Māori Ratpack into the present with a contemporary twist, weaving their acting and musical abilities together to tell stories, fusing hearty and humourous Māori storytelling with the Western tradition of Showband Entertainment. 

With sublime harmonies and universal humour, Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School graduates Matariki Whatarau, Maaka Pohatu, Francis Kora and James Tito mix old school charm with modern quirk, spiced with Māori culture for an unforgettable evening of waiata (song), stories and fun.
