Fakenham tree fest 17 640AT
Fakenham church Christmas tree fest set to grow

This year’s Fakenham Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival preparations will launch next month, and charities wishing to take part are urged to get on board as soon as possible.

Following two years of disruptions, Fakenham’s annual Christmas Tree festival will return to normal this year, and organisers expect it to be bigger and better than before.
The 2020 festival was only able to take place on-line because of the pandemic restrictions. Read our story about this here.
The 2021 festival was able to go ahead, but the last-minute arrival of the trees themselves kept the organisers on tenterhooks. Anne Peppitt, Festival Administrator, said “Last year's festival was surprisingly successful in spite of the trees not arriving in the country until the day before we opened!  We had 40 charities and a wonderful atmosphere. We are looking forward to another busy and successful festival this year”
Representatives of any charity interested in taking part are invited to the launch meeting in the parish church at 7.00pm on 6 April.  The team will be there to outline the procedures and to explain a few changes that are being introduced, and application forms and information will be available. 
Forms will not be issued electronically this year, and completed forms must be returned as hard copy.  The festival desk will be open every Thursday between 10.30am and 11.30am from 21 April for the return of forms or to answer any questions. The closing date for applications is Friday 27 May.
The 22nd Fakenham Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival will run from Thursday 1 December to Thursday 8 December 2022. The festival will be open from 10am to 8pm daily (12 noon to 8pm on the Sunday). The Cafe will be open from 10am to 5pm daily (12noon to 5pm Sunday).

The Festival Service will take place at 10am on Sunday 4th December.
