Every year the church has a wonderful programme of entertainment at the festival. This year there will be Carols, music, bell ringing, concerts, play, poetry and much more throughout the month.

St Andrew's Church will be open daily for votes from 10 am to 5pm except on Sundays when it will be open from mid-day.

There will be refreshments on offer from the church cafe, so the public can enjoy a refreshing drink while deciding on their favourite tree.

The Christmas Tree Festival is being sponsored by AYR Landscaping and Construction, the Fleur de Lys and the Larkmead Vets.

The church Christmas Tree Festival is free with a collection on the door for donations for the Didcot Emergency Food Bank and St Andrew's Church.
