Festival in 2017
Our thirteen Festival was held in December 2017 with 135 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 guests were the Cotter Family, Dominic Cotter is a BBC Radio Gloucestershire presenter and was helped by his wife and children who switched on the lights. We were entertained with music from Baily's Beads who played while we all had a good look at all the trees!
