We first held a Christmas Tree Festival at St Justus in 2014, and year on year it has grown and evolved to become wonderful herald to the festive season.
The premise of the festival is simple – we want to bring the community together in celebration at a most wonderful time of the year. The premise of the festival is to exhibit a large number of Christmas trees, each decorated by a different group, ranging from families to clubs and organisations to businesses. There really are no limits as to who can be involved.
Building on the community focus of this event, we also offer a whole host of festive activities including live music from a diverse range of local musicians and a selection of craft activities. There will be something to appeal to everyone, regardless of age or affiliation.
The Christmas Tree Festival is not just about Christmas Trees and having a good time, though. We have partnered with The Friends of the Wisdom Hospice and the Medway Hospital Charity, and throughout the weekend there will be opportunities to donate to these worthy causes.
