Come and be transported into an amazing creative world of light and colour through our projections on City Hall.

The building’s Gheringhap Street façade will come alive with a show reel that celebrates Christmas through the decades. Many people will be familiar with the amazing work of local artist Matt Bonner who has brought colour and light to City Hall with ANZAC commemoration, Reconciliation Week, Geelong After Dark and previous Christmas projections. This year’s animiated light show will see an elf build a Christmas time machine and travels back in time to remind us of the Christmas spirit over the past 100 years sharing with us his favourite Christmas elements and all things nostalgic. The Christmas elf will take us on a journey to evoke a sense of wonder, beauty and the magic of Christmas. The City Hall projections will run nightly from 9.00pm – 12.00am starting 8 November and finishing on 7 January.

For 8 November launch night only, projections start at 9.45pm.
