Aylsham Christmas Tree Festiva

Christmas tree festival at Aylsham Parish Church

2018: Aylsham’s Christmas Tree Festival starts on November 30, with the town Christmas lights switch-on the same evening, and the action is centred on the parish church.

Many Christmas trees will be filling Aylsham Parish Church with sparkle and a little bit of Christmas magic at the church’s annual Christmas Tree Festival. Last year the event attracted over 5000 visitors and helped raise hundreds of pounds for local charities & groups.  

Aylsham Christmas Tree FestivaThe Christmas Tree Festival is part of an extended weekend of celebrations, which includes the town’s ‘Lights Switch On’; music from Vocalights and Aylsham Town Band, Lantern Procession, Elf Workshop for all the family, a Christmas Craft Market, and another live band to close the festival.
Revd Canon Andrew Beane, the Rector 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 over 35 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. We’ll be bringing in the light of Advent at our traditional Advent Service on the afternoon of December 2.”
