BROMSGROVE’S annual Christmas Tree Festival which was a great success last year is back for 2014.
And a rallying call has gone out to residents, schools, churches, charities, community groups, businesses and other organisations to create trees for the event.
Entries – on this year’s theme ‘The Night Before Christmas’ – need to be at Bromsgrove Methodist Centre by 4pm on December 16.
The festival is free to enter and real trees are welcome, although last year’s event inspired a variety of creations made from anything and everything – from wrapping paper and glitter to edible trees and even a fir made of books from Bromsgrove Library.
The festival will be open from December 17 to December 20 and the trees will be available to view at the Methodist Centre from 10am to 2pm each day.
As well as the viewing, visitors will be entertained by Christmas music and will be able to enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea and a mince pie.
John Wyatt, one of the organisers, said: “Last year’s festival was a great success and we are hoping for even more trees this year.”
