Christmas Tree Festival
The Christmas Tree Festival takes place every December
The Christmas Tree Festival takes place every December and, like the pantomime, raises money for charities. Individuals, groups and businesses decorate trees, which then go on display for a week. The 2017 Festival featured concerts by Musicality Ladies' Choir and Muker Silver Band, along with a felting workshop, a children's storytelling session with Rhoda Fraser, and a musical afternoon tea.
We have raised over £3500 for local charities, including the Great North Air Ambulance, St. Teresa's Hospice, Just the Job, and the Thirsk Blue Cross Centre.
The 2018 Christmas Tree Festival will run from Friday 30th November to Saturday 8th December, and includes performances from Richmondshire Youth Theatre and the return of the incredible African Children's Choir!
