Christmas Tree Festival Opening Evening
St Mary's Church, Yate
The Festival is a community focused event which we hope you will all enjoy, where you will meet friends old and new, enjoy the sights and lights of the fifty Christmas Trees, have a warming cuppa and a mince pie and experience the true meaning of Christmas.
This year our fundraising will be shared 50/50 in partnership with St Peter’s Hospice for their work in the community in the fantastic care and support they give to patients and their families.
Opening Evening - Friday 6 December at 7pm
We are pleased to welcome Bishop Viv, the Bishop of Bristol, who will officially open the Tree Festival. The evening will commence with an iSingPOP presentation by children from St Mary’s School, and conclude with a selection of seasonal choral numbers performed by Yate & Sodbury Musical Comedy Group. Hot food will be available throughout the evening.
The Festival will be open from Saturday 7 December to Sunday 15 December – Saturdays 10.30am to 5pm and Sundays 2pm to 5pm. For details of weekday times please visit our website or on Facebook (Yate Parish). Light refreshments will be available throughout.
