Drama, music and poetry at Holy Trinity Church's Christmas tree festival
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of festive preparations at Holy Trinity Church’s Christmas tree festival in Bishop's Stortford.
The church in South Street will be atwinkle with a display of trees decorated by local community groups and businesses over the course of this weekend's three-day event. There will also be stalls to browse, light refreshments and entertainment.
The festival opens at 12 noon on Friday (Dec 13), with Christmas poetry and prose and mince pies and mulled wine from 7pm to 9pm that evening.
On Saturday there will be a performance of The Snow Queen at 2pm. Tickets priced £5 for adults and £3 for under-10s are available on the door.
The festival will culminate in a family-friendly carol service featuring Puppets Galore at 3pm on Sunday.
The Christmas tree festival is being run in conjunction with Bishop’s Stortford Methodist Church’s Crib Festival, which features displays of the Nativity scene. Visitors to Holy Trinity can collect a sheep and then follow stars in local shop windows to place it among the exhibits. Alternatively, those who start at the Methodist Church can collect a star and then make their way to Holy Trinity to hang it on one of the trees.
