Louth Christmas Tree festival will return this winter

We all missed not having a Christmas Tree Festival at St James’ Church last year – but the festival will be back in December, with an even bigger programme of events.

A Church spokesperson said: “Come along and bring your friends and families to enjoy the wonder of this spectacular event.

“We are anticipating an even better display than 2019 with more trees sponsored and decorated by local groups, schools and businesses.

“There will be live music, a raffle, tombola, stalls on the cobbles, and refreshments available throughout the festival which is free to enter during the day.
