Christmas Tree Festival
St Mary’s Church Heritage Trust
24th November 5pm – Sunday 4th December 6pm 2016
St Mary’s Heritage Trust Christmas Tree Festival brings our community together. Everyone is invited to display a tree in the church which is then open to the public for viewing. Typically, we have 90 trees on display, many of them themed to the interest of the provider. This popular Festival is just one of a number of events organised by the Trust to invite us all to come together, and help raise funds to help preserve the oldest building in Westerham, our 13th century church.
A true Community event, individuals, local businesses, clubs, societies, school and many others contribute elegantly, quirkily or entertainingly decorated trees which transform St Mary’s into a veritable Christmas grotto. Residents and visitors alike are invited into our beautiful church, so that they can enjoy with us those things that we hold dear at this important time of the Christian year.
