Further information 

Christmas is a special time and St Thomas’s Church in Salisbury is once again holding its Decorated Tree Festival in early December. One of the biggest and best attended events of its type in the UK, the Festival opens on Tuesday 5th December and runs through to Sunday 10th. Entry is free.
Over 100 decorated trees and nativity scenes will be on display, all submitted from organisations in South Wiltshire and all provided to raise money for nominated charities.
This year Salisbury Trust for the Homeless and Wiltshire Riding for the Disabled Association are the featured causes. Last year over 14,000 visitors to the Festival contributed over £15,000 to charity!
Every year visitors are amazed and inspired by the heart-warming creativity and ingenuity on view and how this evokes a true reflection on the real meaning of Christmas. As a musical backdrop to this joyous occasion there is a continuous programme of festive music provided by leading local groups, choirs, soloists and bands. To satisfy the taste buds, there are seasonal treats and light lunches available from the St Thomas catering team in the Vestry Cafe.
The Festival is a notable start to a wonderful season of Christmas celebrations at St Thomas’s. On the 16th December there is the Children’s Christingle Service followed on the 17th by the traditional Nine Lessons and Carols early evening service. The extremely popular, “Carols for busy people”, with mulled wine and mince pies, is held on 19th December from 1 pm. This Festive period culminates with Midnight Mass on 24th December and the family service on Christmas Day.
