The 13th annual Christmas Tree Festival opens in St Peter’s, Sudbury at 10am on Wednesday.

This year’s festival – organised jointly by the Rotary Clubs of Sudbury and Sudbury Talbot – promises a seasonal delight with 93 trees being exhibited by local businesses, schools, charities, sports and social groups.

With such a diverse range of exhibitors there is sure to be an enjoyable range of themes, with plenty to delight visitors.

Whether your interest lies in the Battle of Britain, the Women’s Institute Centenary, The Clangers or more traditional decorations of snow, angels and Santa, there is likely to be a tree for everyone.

Opening times are 10 am until 6pm on Wednesday, December 9 through to Saturday, December 12, and 10am to 4pm on Sunday, December 13.

Entry is £1 minimum donation per adult and children under 12 are free.

The 2014 festival raised £3,500 for distribution to local charities and the festival organisers hope to better that figure this year.

Charities benefiting this year are The Kernos centre, Autism Anglia, East Anglian Air Ambulance and Smoke alarms for the Vulnerable.
