Festival in 2016
Trees displayed by:
Our twelfth Festival was held in December 2016 with 140 trees on display. We displayed some on staging while others were at table height and the rest at floor level. We were of course very grateful to all who brought and decorated a tree otherwise the Festival would not happen!

To kick off the annual event, our special guest was Faye Hatcher, BBC Radio Gloucestershire Saturday and Sunday morning presenter who switched on the lights and we were entertained with music from Baily's Beads who played while we all had a good look at all the trees!
