Grassington Dickensian Christmas Tree Festival 2016
Following the huge success of last year’s Christmas Tree Festival we are planning another one – even bigger than last year’s!
As part of this year’s Grassington Dickensian Festival, we are planning another Christmas Tree Festival at Grassington Congregational Church.
We hope that all parts of the community will take part in what we trust will be another wonderful festival: local schools; local churches; local clubs; businesses; families and individuals. The trees will enable you to express your artistic talents, share your news, provide valuable advertising and send Christmas wishes to those who attend the Festival. It will also be a beautiful and colourful opportunity to demonstrate your group’s involvement with the community whilst supporting the Dickensian Festival. The only charge is your personal cost of providing the tree and decorations.
The trees can take all kinds of shape from traditional to quirky, but we hope that the church will look superb filled with beautiful trees, upon which people have spent time and effort decorating.
There are no prizes, but the Church will be open for the community to view the trees, enjoy the music and refreshments and soak up the festive atmosphere.
