The 17th Christmas Tree Festival 2017
30th November – 7th December 2017
Organisation of the 2017 Christmas Tree Festival is already underway, and as before, we are asking charities to collect their application packs from us. For over 40 charities this was at the Launch Meeting which was very well attended on Monday 3rd April in the Parish Church.
If you are a charity interested in having a tree at the 2017 Festival and could not attend the meeting on 3rd April, please come and find the Festival Desk in church on Thursday mornings (11am – 12noon), where one of the Team will be available to discuss your application, explain the process, and provide the necessary forms.
This enables new charities – and new organisers of ‘old’ charities – to view the site of the Festival and to meet the Festival Team. It also allows the Team to describe and explain any new changes for the benefit of old friends.
The deadline for applications is again the 1st June. Listening to the feedback we have been given over the past few years, it has been decided to limit the number of trees to 55. As we have already given out 50 application forms – and received several full registrations – it is likely that we will be oversubscribed this year. If this is the case, the team will use either ‘first come, first served’ or a ballot process for choosing the lucky applicants. Successful charities will be notified by 30th June. The Festival is full. Any late applications will be put on a waiting list.
If you have any queries please email email@example.com (subject matter CTF please) or ring Alison on 01328 864685
Last year the 50+ groups collected over £17,000 – an average of over £300 each, as well as raising the profile of their charity. We do hope you will be one of the charities joining us this year and help us to continue the success of the Fakenham Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival.
