Momentum is growing for this year’s Christmas Tree Festival, and we are pleased to say that the entries are already coming in. This year we have extended the opening hours to give an additional evening for people to come and see the trees. Admission charges will stay the same, £3.50 for adults – free for u16s and
students. Visitors will enter through the main door and follow a one-way system around the church to view all the trees. They will then exit through the North door, at the rear of the church, to a further trail around the churchyard, with a number of surprises to get you into the festive spirit. As always it will be free to enter a tree into the festival, and entries are invited from groups, businesses and individuals. So if you have a tree idea, or if you simply want to show your tree off before putting it in your house, please enter on line at https://brightlingseachristmastreefestival.co.uk, or email Linda Salmon at salmonlinda978@gmail.com
CHRISTMAS THEMED CONCERT on the evening of Sat 11 Dec. We are also very pleased to announce that we have secured a Brass Band to play; more details later.
