York Minster’s first Christmas Tree Festival has opened in the cathedral’s grounds, featuring nearly 40 trees decorated by local businesses, schools and charities.
The festival will take place in a festive marquee by the South Piazza, with the medieval Minster as its backdrop, and will be open daily (excluding Christmas Day) until 6 January 2022.
Visitors will be able to see the trees decorated to individual themes, vote for their favourite tree in a ‘best dressed tree’ competition and take part in activities, including adding their own Christmas message to a tag to hang on a prayer tree, and family craft sessions on Saturday 20 November.
