Stowmarket Christmas Tree Festival 2017
25th November 2017 – 6th January 2018
St Peter and St Mary’s Church Stowmarket, IP14 1ES
The famous Stowmarket Christmas Tree Festival will be open for visitors to see the spectacular Christmas trees from Saturday 25th November to Saturday 6th January. The Christmas Tree Festival is an established and well-loved event in the town’s calendar attracting up to 30,000 visitors to see the hundreds of Christmas trees in the town centre venues as well as those illuminated ones on the lamp posts provided by the Town Council. It is truly an experience not to be missed.
In our fourteenth century impressive and large Parish Church over 350 trees give that incredible 'WOW'' factor that has to be seen to be believed. So many of the town's groups and families work together to make a visit such a memorable experience. As well as a chance to think a little more about the Christmas story in a fun and imaginative way there is so much creativity and talent to admire. Some of the more unusual trees have included an optical illusion tree, one made from 600 buttons and another from inflated rubber gloves.
Stowmarket Christmas Tree Festival is a great place to visit and is one of the region’s largest winter attractions. We welcome coach parties, residential homes, school visits, and office outings etc. each year. If you would like to bring a group of people or a coach party please contact the church office to arrange a day and time.
If you would like to decorate a Christmas tree please contact the church office for further details about the theme. Application forms will be available in July. We supply the tree and there is no charge to decorate it. Businesses, groups, charities and organisations as well as families and individuals can apply to decorate a tree.
