From 29th November until 2nd December, visitors to the Purbeck area of Dorset can get involved with a special festival this winter: the Purbeck Christmas Tree Festival Weekend.
St. James' Church, Kingston will be the place to be for Christmas cheer without any of the shopping excitement that sometimes seems to take over the holiday. Locals have been invited to sponsor a tree for 4 days, decorating it in their own individual style until around 30 trees fill the hall, ready to celebrate advent.
hose enjoying Dorset cottage holidays at the time are more than welcome to come along and join in the celebrations, with an exciting evening concert at 6pm on Saturday evening and, from 3.30pm on Sunday, there will be an afternoon of festive carols played on an organ. Entry is free and any donations will go to the church and local charities, so why not head to St. James' Church this winter and spread goodwill to all men?
