Christmas Tree Festival

Fakenham Age Concern Minibus Christmas Tree

Nearly 60 charities are taking part in the festivities by dressing their very own tree with specially selected decorations to light up the pews, choir stalls and the font of Fakenham Parish Church, on Oak Street.

Refreshments are available throughout.


Now in its 18th year, charities will begin decorating their trees on Tuesday hoping their creations will encourage donations from visitors to the church over the next week. Volunteers will also work on a rota to ensure its smooth running.

The event is expected to raise hundreds of pounds for each good cause along with funds for the church itself. Last year’s festival saw the charities raise a combined total of £18,424.32, plus the church’s efforts which brought in £16,433.

The church will be open daily from Thursday, November 29 until Thursday, December 6 from 10am to 8pm Monday to Saturday and noon to 8pm on the Sunday.
