A special Christmas Tree Festival is set to be held in Tetbury this month.

The event, which has been organised by Tetbury Town Council, will see St Saviour’s Church filled with trees decorated by local clubs and organisations.

“It is a lovely way of bringing the community and local organisations, schools and clubs together by each decorating a Christmas tree,” said Community and Tourism Development Manager, Georgina Osman.

“As well as the display of decorated trees, you also have the opportunity to leave your memories of loved ones, friends and family on our Christmas Memory Tree.”

The trees will be on display at the church from Monday 2nd December right through to Saturday 4th January.

The festival will be free to enter, and any donations made will go to the Churches Conservation Trust.

Georgina continued: “This is the third year the festival has run and we anticipate having 15 to 20 trees.

“St. Saviour’s Church is a magnificent Victorian church that was built in an ornate medieval style for the poor of the parish, who could not afford to pay for seats in Tetbury’s other church, St Mary’s.”

Some of the local groups involved in decorating the trees include St Mary’s Primary School, Tetbury Lions and the Tetbury and District Twinning Association.

The Christmas Tree Festival will be just one of many festive events going on in the town this month, as Georgina explains.

“There will be a Community Carol service held in St. Saviours Church on Saturday 7th December starting at 5.30pm – with mulled-wine and mince pies!

“And not forgetting the town’s Christmas Light Switch-On night happening on Friday 6th December, starting with a lantern carol parade from St. Mary’s Church to the Market House, with the Mayor switching on the lights at 6pm.

“There will be a Santa’s grotto, stalls, street entertainment and much more organised by the Mayor of Tetbury in partnership with town organisations.”
