'Magical spectacle' as All Saints' Church in Harrow Weald holds Christmas Tree Festival
A church in Harrow Weald has been transformed into a winter wonderland.
All Saints’ Church, in Uxbridge Road, has been decorated with more than 40 Christmas trees as part of the church’s Christmas Tree Festival.
Each tree has been decorated by a different school, business or community group.
Vicar, James Mercer, said: ‘We are always looking for creative ways to put Harrow Weald and its community on the map.
“We look forward to welcoming people to enjoy this magical spectacle of a church full of individually decorated trees, celebrating the contribution all sorts of groups and business make to the community.”
The festival will run from December 6 to 11 and will be open from 4pm until 8pm on weekdays and from 10am until 5pm on Saturday and 12pm until 5pm on Sunday.
During the festival there will also be a visit from Father Christmas on the Saturday afternoon and a performance by St John’s School orchestra on Thursday between 7pm and 8pm.
Mulled wine and mince pies will be served throughout the festival.
Martyn Steele, deputy headteacher at St John’s C of E School, Stanmore, said: “Our young musicians have been practicing hard for this event and are looking forward to their first public performance in a forest of Christmas trees.”
