Festival in 2014
Trees displayed by:
Our tenth Festival was held in December 2014 was again a record breaker with 137 trees on display. Some trees were displayed at table height and the rest at floor level. We were of course very grateful to all who brought and decorated a tree.

At the start of the event, we invited Richard Atkins, BBC Radio Gloucestershire presenter, to switch on the lights together with the help of ten children lighting candles - one for each year of the Festival.
