St Chad’s Christmas Tree Festival 2016

Festival Programme 2016

Over fifty decorated and illuminated Christmas trees will fill St Chad’s for the opening of our fifth Christmas Tree Festival.  There will be a diverse daily programme of Christmas music, song and dance from 10th to 20th of December. Admission is free. This spectacular display of trees will continue to be open to view daily until 5th January. Over 10,000 people visited St Chad’s last year and looked around the trees.

The daily Christmas programme will include performances by school choirs, musicians and dancers, recitals on St Chad’s spectacular organ, Morris dancers and handbell ringers as well as St Chad’s regular Friday ‘Concerts in the Round’.

The trees are sponsored by the generosity of local businesses, community organisations and schools, colleges and musical groups. Those schools mainly and other organisations taking part  as performers, without sponsoring a tree, are most welcome and take part without charge in this celebration of Christmas. It’s a special experience, with some beautifully decorated Christmas trees in the wonderful ambience of St. Chad’s; a real Christmastide treat for all the family.

Further information is available from the church office between the hours of 10-00am and 12-00 noon, Monday to Friday, by calling 01743 365 478, or by email:
