Treefest at St Mary Redcliffe Church
Tel: +44 (0)1172310060
An online display of 100 decorated Christmas trees 12 December - 2 January 2021
Treefest is a spectacular festive display of Christmas trees normally held within the splendid gothic church of St Mary Redcliffe. This year due to the restrictions imposed by the Covid pandemic they are holding Treefest online, displaying the trees in a virtual exhibition.
Treefest is a fabulous celebration of the diversity of creative talent in Bristol and an opportunity to learn more about the groups behind the trees. Last year Treefest raised over £6000 for charity, attracting 5000 visitors.
The selected charities this year are Treeaid and St Mary Redcliffe Community projects. Treeaid work with local communities in the dry lands of Africa to help them protect and grow trees helping to lift themselves out of poverty and protect their environment. The trees provide nutrition, generate income and help to create a healthy environment. www.treeaid.org.uk
They are inviting local people, charities, schools, businesses and other organisations to take part by making or decorating a Christmas tree. You can choose any size tree and use any technique or material you choose. In the past they've have had trees made out of canoes, paper, books, fabric, wood, wire, ladders, tools, textiles, recycled materials, & pompoms.
There is no entry fee and it’s a wonderful way to promote your organisation. To enter please complete an entry form by 16 November 2020.
