The St. Thomas’s Church Christmas Tree Festival is a fixture in the local Wiltshire calendar and this year is no different, even if the event itself will now be online as a result of ongoing government restrictions.
After the success of our naturally-inspired Christmas tree last year, we’ll once again be getting involved in this wonderful, unique event. The Christmas Tree Festival will be celebrated on a dedicated website between 1st – 15th December, giving exhibitors the perfect opportunity to express their Christmassy creativity and viewers the chance to experience a little festive magic from the comfort of their own home.
The online festival will feature photographs of all the trees created by a selection of small businesses, charities and groups, meaning that this year’s festival will be more accessible that ever to people across the world once its launched. The organisers are also encouraging those taking part to display the trees in their shop windows, offices and various other sites around Salisbury, so that both visitors and the local community can also appreciate them in reality.
Last year was the first time the charity was involved in the festival and it was lovely to see so many people attending and appreciating all the entries. Plenty of people stopped to admire our Horatio’s Garden themed tree, which was created by patients and volunteers together using only natural materials found in the garden. It also featured our signature colours, so this year’s team may have a lot to live up to, but we’re certain they’re more than prepared for the challenge!
We are really looking forward to seeing all the entries that are sent in and hope you enjoy looking at them when the time comes as much as we do!
The Christmas Tree Festival website is not yet live, but we will update this page with the link once the event is launched.
