For over a decade, the Christmas Tree Festival in our church has attracted visitors from far and wide. Usually with over a hundred trees, each decorated by local schools, businesses and charities, it has quickly become a central part of the Christmas season in our town.
The 12th Tree Festival in 2019 had more than 125 trees beautifully decorated by schools, societies, charities and businesses. As well as all the trees to look and marvel at, there were refreshments, seasonal music and a number of gift stalls. The ten-day magical festival was inspiring and gave a lot of pleasure to visitors and the participants themselves.
It is with great regret that the 2020 Christmas Tree Festival inside our beautiful church will not take place due to the Covid pandemic. We hope to be back in 2021 to stage the 13th Christmas Tree Festival – dates and more information will be published in the New Year.
