St. Martin’s Church Christmas Tree Festival will be held on the weekend of Marple Bridge’s Winter Wonderland, Friday 1st December to Sunday 3rd December 2017.

Trees can be viewed before or after the concert on the evening of Friday 1st December. The concert will start at 7:00 pm, and the church will be open from 6:30 pm. Tickets are £6.00 for adults, £1.00 for children and this includes mulled wine or a soft drink, and mince pies in the church hall after the concert. Some of the craft stalls may also be open on Friday evening so that you can do some Christmas shopping.

On Saturday 2nd December the church will be open from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, and there will also be a craft fair in the church hall where refreshments will be on sale. Admission is by programme which costs £1.00 per adult – accompanied children are admitted free of charge.

On Sunday 3rd December the church will be open from 9:30 am for you to view the trees before the Mass and Toy Service, which begins at 10:00 am; and following the service the church will remain open until 4:00 pm. (Donated toys are distributed to children who would otherwise receive nothing. If you are able to donate any toys but you are unable to attend the Sunday service please let me know and we can make alternative arrangements).

The Lord Mayor and Consort of Stockport will judge the trees on Saturday 2nd December at 12:00 noon. Visitors are also invited to vote for their favourite tree. You can vote on Friday, Saturday or Sunday and the votes will be counted after the church closes on Sunday. The winners will be notified as soon as possible. Small prizes will be awarded for the winning trees.
