The 11th annual South Norfolk Christmas Tree extravaganza, 50 Christmas Trees in a Church, returns with 53 trees at All Saints Dickleburgh from Sunday, November 30 to Sunday, December 7.

Event organiser Rev James Roskelly said: “We are delighted with the response from the local community, contributing 53 decorated trees to our event. The church will be full of Christmas Trees, celebrating this year’s theme, ‘Signs and Wonders of Christmas’.”

South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon will officially open the Christmas Tree festival at 5pm on Saturday, November 29. The festival is then open daily 10am -7pm, except Sunday, December 7, when it closes at 4pm for the prize giving.

Entrance is free, but there is a charge for the programme and voting slip. The Christmas tree festival is raising money for two charities, Elizabeth's Legacy of Hope and Ormiston Families.

Programme and voting slip charge: adult £3.50, concessions £3, children free and pre-booked groups £2.75 per adult.

Morning coffee, light lunches and teas are served every day throughout the festival in Dickleburgh Church Rooms (next to the church).
