dON'T MISS THE TREES!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
Yes, Christmas is just around the corner and we are excited to say that St Mary’s Church, Melton Mowbray, will (Covid permitting) soon be full of festive cheer - and Christmas Trees!
Due to the pandemic our popular Christmas Tree Festival was cancelled last year but we are working hard to try to ensure that our beautiful Grade 1 Listed building is full of trees this year.
So make a note of the dates. This year’s event takes place from Wednesday, December 1st until Wednesday, December 8th.
We will have to do things differently. We will have to adhere to Covid restrictions, at the moment we are asking people to wear face coverings whenever possible and we won’t be able to have as many trees as in previous years.
But that won’t stop us offering you a visit to remember when our trees go up.
We know you have missed us from the many messages we have received. In the past the festival has brought together schools, businesses, organisations, individuals and visitors from all over the country (and sometimes other countries) to take part.
We have named this year’s festival “Christmas Trees@ St Mary’s, a special event for 2021”. Look forward to seeing you there.
*Tickets to this year’s Opening Night of Christmas Trees @ St Mary's on Wednesday, December 1st, are now available and cost £4 each.
St Mary’s Church will be lit by Christmas tree lights only and you can enjoy a glass of wine or fruit juice, a festive treat to eat and listen to Musical Director James Gutteridge and members of Melton Mowbray Choral Society.
There will also be chance to take a quick look round the Christmas tree entries for this year’s event. Doors open at 6pm.
Tickets can be purchased from the Reception or Parish Office at Mary’s Place in Burton Street on weekday mornings from 10am to 12noon, or from Phil & Karen Balding on 01664 564227.
