Christmas Trees will be helping to fill Aylsham Parish Church with colour and a little bit of Christmas spirit at the church’s annual Christmas Tree Festival which starts on Friday 25th November until Wednesday 30th November.

The Christmas Tree Festival is just part of an extended weekend of celebrations, which includes the Town’s lights switch-on and lantern procession, Christmas elf workshop, coffee morning with children’s activities, the annual Advent candlelit carol service, a special Christmas Monday craft market and a photography evening.

Revd Canon Andrew Beane, the Vicar of Aylsham said: “It is wonderful that the Church will be at the centre of the town’s celebrations, we are delighted that we will be helping to support nearly 30 local, national and international charities over the weekend.

Our Christmas Tree Festival is about promoting the charitable work of lots of different organisations in the town and reminding visitors that at the heart of Christmas is generosity, hospitality, and of course the birth of Jesus.”

The Festival runs from Friday 25th November to Thursday 1st December from 10am to 4pm with late night opening on Friday. Admission is free. The Festival is ending this year with an evening with Carol Ann Duffy, the Poet Laureate organised by The Book Hive.
