Christmas Tree Festival...
St Edmundsbury Cathedral will be hosting its first ever Christmas Tree Festival on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December 2013.
The Cathedral Cloisters will be bedecked with Christmas trees, which will be decorated by local charities and entered into a competition for people to vote for their favourite. There will also be a special tree for children to add their decorations to, as well as a tree where people can leave prayers and messages for loved ones.
Refreshments well be available throughout the Festival, including mulled wine and minced pies to really get you into the Christmas spirit!
Thanks to the generous support of local businesses, all profits from the event will be split between each of the participating charities. PR Manager at the Cathedral, Sarah Friswell, explains: 'We have been overwhelmed with the enthusiasm of local businesses to support this new venture. We wanted to provide an opportunity for local charities to raise their profile and to generate some welcome additional funds at this important time of year.'
The Festival is open 10am-5pm on Saturday 7th and 11.30am-4pm on Sunday 8th. Entry is £2.50 per person, with children 16 and under being free of charge.
