Wed30Nov2016Sat03Dec201610 am onwardsSt Paul's Church, Bedford

The church is decorated with a large number of small Christmas trees, each having been decorated by various schools and organisations. During the day there are concerts from a wide variety of groups all providing magnificent music. The festival is well worth a visit even if you are unable to help on this occasion.
