Trees displayed by:
Our eleven Festival was held in December 2015 was again a record breaker with 143 trees being displayed. Without the pews some trees were displayed on staging while other stool on tables 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 Steve Kitchen, BBC Radio Gloucestershire presenter, to switch on the lights and we were entertained with music from Baily's Beads!
