The music of international superstar Adele comes to Whitehorse as former The Voice contestant Naomi Price headlines a wonderful night of entertainment. Back by popular demand will be Like This with their collection of lively tunes, along with the blues fuelled Intrepid Hounds.

The angelic voices of the Australian Girls Choir will perform the national anthem and brass band All Day Fritz will delight the kids. This stunning night of entertainment will end with a bang with a 10-minute fireworks finale.

The full concert will be AUSLAN interpreted with a dedicated viewing area at stage left, with interpreters also on the big screen throughout.

If you arrive late for the concert, please note we have a second viewing area for the fireworks located behind the Whitehorse Centre. This area also has a big screen so you can still watch the show.

When leaving the site, please be mindful of changed traffic conditions on Whitehorse Road and Rooks Road. Rooks Road will be temporarily closed post event, and a detour will be made via Station Street. If you have found a park on the event site, exiting traffic will be directed around the back of the Nunawading Police Station and out Humphreys Ave. No cars will be able to exit via the Civic Centre entry.

Please note, parking for the event will be limited so make your way by bike, on foot or by catching public transport. A dedicated bicycle parking area will be available for the public (next to Nunawading Library).
