St Peter’s Church, Thornton – Christmas Tree festival

Following the success of past Christmas Tree Festivals at St Peter’s Church, Thornton, the Friends of St. Peter’s (FOSP), are organising their fourth Christmas Tree Festival at the church. 

It will be open to the public over the weekend of Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th December (50p entrance per adult, with refreshments available for a small charge). 

All money raised will go towards the maintenance of this lovely 14th century listed building.

Would you like to bring, decorate and exhibit a tree and be part of this event?   We do hope so! 

There will be prizes in various categories and an impressive and colourful display of trees will make the Carol Service even better than ever.

The theme of the Festival is “Colours of Christmas”so all you need to do is to take your inspiration and decorate a tree based on topics associated with Christmas colours.
