The disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to many big changes to our everyday lives and, as the summer months loom, adjustments are still being made.
Outdoor gatherings are limited to 20 people under NSW Government Public Health Orders, with restrictions likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future.
“With those limits in mind, and the safety of our community as our primary concern, Liverpool City Council is regretfully being forced to make changes to our popular summer program of public events,” Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said.
“Christmas in the Mall will not be held in its usual form, but we’re still going to bring some Christmas cheer to the community through new online content and a smaller series of pop-up live events to avoid attracting congregating crowds.
“Our large-scale outdoor New Year’s Eve celebration, Light Up the Lake, and 2021 Australia Day celebrations are cancelled, though Liverpool City Council is working on new and innovative ways to deliver these much-loved events.
“In the months since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we have delivered the free #LoveLivo Live music events and the L-FRESH The LION album launch concert via Facebook.
“Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre has produced a packed program of online events for the whole family, and is continuing to add to its digital offerings.
“And Liverpool City Library has migrated much-loved free activities such as Storytime and its school holiday program online, continually adding to its virtual event list.”
