With Christmas approaching businesses and organisations in Auchterarder have offered to sponsor a Christmas tree for the Auchterarder Christmas Tree Festival
Now in its fifth year, the Auchterarder Bloom Association Christmas Tree Festival is bigger than ever before with 40 trees on display, sponsored by businesses and local organisations.
Auchterarder Bloom Association are delighted that the Auchterarder Parish Church have again agreed to host the event, which is designed to promote local businesses and groups within the area and to attract locals and visitors to this amazing festival of Christmas.
Each year the festival has attracted more than 1500 people including 370 nursery and primary school children to see the trees.
The Bloom Association are keen to let people know that the trees are live, planted out again, looked after and recycled by the Bloom Association for the following year.
The trees supplied to sponsors are already potted and complete with LED lights. All the sponsors need to do is decorate the tree to theme their business or to convey a festive message.
The Festival runs from Monday 11th December through to 23rd December and will be open 2 – 5pm Monday to Saturday. Entry is £2 for adults (children free), which includes teas, coffee and cakes.
There will also be a range of special events including an interactive display for children telling the story of the First Christmas. There will be a live music day on Saturday 16th December from 2pm till 4pm featuring local artists singing and playing a variety of musical instruments. Something for everyone.
