Stroud Parish Church
Community Christmas Tree Festival 2019
St Laurence Church situated in the Shambles, Stroud has hosted fourteen 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 15th St Laurence Church Community Christmas Tree Festival will be held between Sunday 1st December and Sunday 8th December 2019.
The Festival Switch-on ceremony will be held on Sunday 1st December at 4:00 p.m. with celebrity guest Jon Smith, BBC Radio Gloucestershire Presenter with music by the popular Baily's Beads. The Festival will end with a Christmas Tree Festival Songs of Praise at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday 8th December 2019.
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!
