Festival of Christmas Trees

This weekend will see Hazelwood Church in Kings Heath in a festive frenzy, stuffing their congregation full of decorated Christmas trees. Members of the public will be able to see the ‘Festival of Christmas’ on the afternoons and evenings of Friday December 1, Saturday December 2 and Sunday December 3.

Over 45 trees will be contributed by local organisations and decorated with items representing their business. With a dentists and a chiropodists amongst the providers, some unorthadox tree decorations can be expected.

The aptly named Canon Priestley, Vicar of Hazelwood Church said: “We want to make this a friendly occasion when church and community come together to create a magical event and so help one another.”

Admission costs £2 for adults with accompanied children going free. All profits will be shared amongst three local charities.
