Carol Service will NOT be sign accessible...

Marina Prior and David Hobson perform at the 2014 Carols By Candlelight event.Vision Australia will not provide Auslan interpreters at its popular Carols by Candlelight event this year, despite calls from the deaf community.

Statewide service provider Vicdeaf, which also offers community Auslan classes, contacted Vision Australia to urge them to provide interpreting services on Friday. But Vision Australia chief executive officer Ron Hooton told Fairfax Media they would be unable to organize an interpreter in time for this year's event.

"Unfortunately, the logistics for the 2016 event are now complete," Mr Hooton said.
