Once again we are celebrating seasonal creativity and the true spirit of Christmas – but in a new way!
The St Thomas’s Christmas Tree Festival this year is an Online Christmas Tree Festival, available to view from 1st to 15th December. COVID-19 with restrictions affecting large gatherings means it is not possible to hold the Festival in the church. Instead we are letting you see the decorated Christmas trees and Nativity scenes on this specially-created website. You will also be able to hear audio recordings from the musicians who would otherwise have played live during the Festival.
We’ve received entries from many individuals, local organisations, charities and businesses, and you have a choice of how you want to view our Festival. There are several ways to view it. See the Green Box below.
