Every year around the first or second weekend in December, around 50 cleverly designed and decorated trees are brought into this wonderful medieval building.

The trees represent clubs and organisations, businesses and individuals. There is no theme and each tree shows the skills and preoccupations of the those bringing the tree. Thus, we have had trees decorated with miniature shoes, or made from CD's, or more elaborate constructions of bell mechanisms and spanners welded to an exhaust system! Anything is possible and year on year the invention goes.

On the Saturday of the Festival there is a magnificent Christmas Craft Fair in the Christian Centre, with gifts, cards and decoration galore. So, we urge people to save some of their present shopping until then. We also cater for the inner being with refreshments being served on both days.

As the trees come into the church it is extraordinary how the whole place takes on a sparkle. There is a magic that takes over as we celebrate the wonderful gift to the world of the Jesus Christ. Sat Dec 4th 10am to 5pm Sun Dec 5th 12noon to 5pm Entry £3 – children free
