Two-year-old Dusty (pictured) is making a list, checking it twice, ready for when Santa, Christmas fairies and elves, and a long list of performers lead concert-goers for next month’s Carols at the Castle singalong.

Overnewton Castle at Keilor will throw open its gates for the annual event on Sunday, December 20.

Families are welcome to bring along a picnic and there will be refreshments available to buy.

Gates open at 5pm, with roving performances before the concert starts at 7pm.

Tickets are $20 for a family of five, $8 for singles and $5 concession. All proceeds will go to the Brimbank Community Fund. Tickets are available at trybooking.com/JDCN
