Community Christmas Tree Festival 2017

St Laurence Church situated in the Shambles, Stroud has hosted twelve very successful Community Christmas Tree Festivals, in December every year since 2005! We had 30 trees in our first year, and it has grown since then so that we are able to regularly have over 135 beautifully and thoughtfully decorated trees displayed by organisations, businesses, groups or individuals from across the local area. The event has become an enormous community occasion and it is great that so many want to take part.

The 13th St Laurence Church Community Christmas Tree Festival will be held between Sunday 26th November and Sunday 3rd December 2017.

The Festival Switch-on ceremony will be held on Sunday 26th November with our special guest Dominic Cotter, BBC Radio Gloucestershire Presenter with music by the ever popular Baily's Beads. The Festival will end with the Christmas Tree Festival Songs of Praise at 4:00 p.m on Sunday 3rd December 2017

We are keen to welcome as many local people to see the displays as possible. But all this has been made possible from the support of local people who take part in this amazing spectacle.

If you, either as an individual, group, organisation or business, would like to display a Christmas tree for the Festival please do contact us!
