5th Annual Christmas Tree Extravaganza Dickleburgh Church

The fifth annual South Norfolk Christmas Tree extravaganza, 50 Christmas Trees in a Church, is set to take place in Dickleburgh Church from Sunday, November 30 to Sunday, December 7.

The Right Reverend Graham James, Lord Bishop of Norwich will officially open the Christmas celebration on Saturday, November 29, following a Service of Light at 4.30pm (closes 7pm).

The festival features up to 60 individually decorated trees created by local organisations. The event has a competitive edge, as each organisation has the chance to win cash prizes in the public vote.
This year’s artist in residence is Nick Arnull, a woodturner from Horsford near Norwich, who will be displaying decorative handmade wooden items in the church.

The event will open 10am to 7pm daily from Sunday, November 30 to Sunday, December 7 (close 5pm on December 7). Admission is adult £3.50, senior citizens and concessions £3, pre-booked groups £2.75, children free.

All money raised will be shared between the East Anglian Children’s Hospice (EACH), The Matthew Trust in Norwich, which assists the homeless and the parish churches of Dickleburgh, Pulham Market, Pulham St Mary, Rushall, Starston, Thelveton, Shimpling and Frenze. Morning coffee, light lunches and teas will be served all day in Dickleburgh Church Rooms (next to the church).

Event organiser, Rev. Norman Steer said: “We are really looking forward to our annual Christmas Tree Festival. It is a wonderful way to bring people together in the run up to Christmas. We always see so many smiling faces looking at our glorious trees”

Dickleburgh village is to the north of Diss, just off the A140.
