Decorate a tree

We will not be inviting supporters to decorate a tree this year but hope to get back to normal for 2022.

Eighty freshly cut trees are usually available to clubs, schools, societies, organisations, and businesses who wish to decorate and light a tree. Invitations to take part will be dispatched in September to those who have taken part during the last three years. If you have not decorated a tree in that time and you wish to take part this year, please use the CONTACT page to provide us with your POSTAL contact details.

We provide the trees and stands, – you provide the decorations, which may reflect a theme or your organisation. This will be a wonderful opportunity for you to publicise the activities of your group.

Be creative! If the decorations are home made so much the better. You will be provided with a convenient power point to connect your tree lights. LED lights are recommended but, please, no battery driven sets; they invariably run out of juice! Your tree should be decorated on the Thursday before the Festival starts between 9am and 4pm. Most people take at least an hour to decorate their tree.

You will be asked to contribute £20 towards our costs but at the end of the festival the tree (but not the stand) will become yours to take away. Costs are considerably higher than the sum requested but we do not want to exclude anyone for financial reasons. If you are able to increase your donation we will be delighted.
