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 this 25th November until Wednesday 30thNovember 2016.
But not just Christmas Trees! The Christmas Tree Festival is just part of an extending 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; & a photography evening.
Revd Canon Andrew Beane, the new 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.”
