Some 120 trees of all shapes and sizes will fill the Cathedral and each one is a work of imagination and art.

Many local schools, businesses and organisations participate as will individuals. Tea, coffee and fruit punch will be served and a stall selling seasonal goodies will be a treat. Workshops and gingerbread decorating are organised as part of the festival. Tours of the belfry provide a fantastic opportunity for people to see the belfry which is usually not part of the visitor’s experience.

There is a wonderful civic, engaging atmosphere in the Cathedral during this very special festival. This is an annual event in the city and has become a Christmas experience that people cannot miss.
