Our first Festival was held in 2005. We had 30 decorated trees in the Church, some were displayed at pew height (that's when we had pews!) and the rest at floor level. We were very grateful to all groups for spending so much time decorating the trees.
At our preview evening the tree lights were switched on by Councillor John Marjoram, who was Vice Chairman of Stroud Town Council at the time!
