Scopwick Christmas Tree Festival 11-12 December 09

Holy Cross Church, Scopwick
Friday 11 - Sunday 13 December

Enjoy an oasis of calm in the run up to the festive season by joining us for an hour or two at our magical, pre-Christmas celebrations. The Church will be lavishly decked out and lit by candles and fairy lights.

Join us for our Preview evening on Friday 11 December from 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm. Tickets are £5.00, to include a glass of mulled wine, wine or soft drink and canapés. You will have the opportunity to buy gifts, decorations and produce and try your luck with a raffle and giant tombola. The fully dressed Christmas trees will be auctioned and available for collection on Sunday evening or Monday morning. These have been donated and beautifully decorated by various companies and individuals in the area. Lynda and Maurice, who you have seen and heard before, will provide live seasonal songs and music - sing along if you wish!

On Saturday 12 December and Sunday 13 December the doors will be open from 10.30 am to 6.00 pm daily. Families can enjoy mulled wine and light refreshments, including mince pies. There is an old wives tale that twelve mince pies made by different cooks should be eaten to give you luck throughout the coming year! Have your first one here. You will also have the chance to buy gifts, decorations and produce, including delicious puddings (to save the ladies some cooking) jam, chutney, Christmas puddings and sloe gin. Try your hand at the Giant Tombola with some wonderful prizes, while the children do a special Christmas Quiz.

The climax of the weekend on Sunday 13 December is Carols by Candlelight at 6.00pm with all your favourite carols and festive readings. Feedback from our previous Festival was that the grandchildren found it all absolutely magical! Please do bring a torch.
