St George’s is celebrating its 12th Christmas Tree Festival from 28th November to 2nd December. Last year over 3,000 visitors, 1,000 of them children, turned out to make the event a big success.
As in previous years we are looking for exhibitors to supply, decorate and illuminate an artificial Christmas tree, being mindful that they will be in a church setting. These can display any leaflets or other promotional materials which may prove useful for your organisation.
As in previous years we are required to test all electrical appliances that come into church before they are used. We therefore use Portable Appliance Testing (PAT). We are able to test any lights on Tuesday 27th November when exhibitors arrive to put up their trees. However if you want to ensure that your lights are tested beforehand, there will be a large labelled box at the back of church available just before and after church services for the preceding two weeks. Please ensure any lights are well labelled with your name as many look the same! Also a reminder that some people find rapidly flashing lights disturbing, so it would be helpful if you can check that your lights can be set to a slower or static setting.
Please note that all lights have to be tested and any that fail cannot be used in church. All items that pass the test have a special dated sticker attached to indicate that they are safe.
We ask private exhibitors/ charities entering a tree, for a contribution of £10 and businesses of £20.
An application form for the Christmas tree Festival is linked below. It will have to be returned either electronically or by post by Tuesday 31st October at the latest.
