This will be the 18th year that the Festival has taken place in the centre of Bedford in support of the Church and the Charity. It is now a firm favourite by many who see this as their start to Christmas to see our historic and beautiful St Paul’s Church lit by over 60 trees decorated by so many community groups, schools and firms. This year we are building on this tradition of community involvement by reflecting our diverse cultural identity in the 2018 theme Christmas Around the World. If you wish to book a tree to decorate please ring 01234 340163. The cost is £15 to decorate a tree or £30 to decorate it and take it home after the event.
There will be a photography competition and special choirs of all ages singing throughout each day adding to the magical Christmas atmosphere.
On Friday evening at 7.30pm we will be holding the much enjoyed Christmas concert given this year by the Philharmonia Chamber Players.
