ERA Christmas Tree Festival

When: 6th Dec 2018 - 9th Dec 2018
Where: Beverley Minster, 38 Highgate, Beverley HU17 0DN

Your arty creations are needed for ERA’s Christmas Tree Festival!

Tree dressing is on Wednesday 5th December. The tree will be taken down on 10th December.

Our theme this year is ‘Star Light, Star Bright’ in a blue and silver theme.

This will be the 5th year that ERA has booked a tree for ERA members to dress at Beverley Minster. The festival is held over four days and there are more than eighty trees inside the Minster, all dressed by various organisations from the area. It’s a beautiful sight and lots of visitors come to see the trees.

ERA takes part because we believe it’s an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of our organisation and gives members a chance to show off their creativity, by designing tree decorations on a chosen theme.

Decorations should be:

  • Up to approx 9″ in height.
  • Not too heavy!
  • Made of any material (bearing in mind it has to hang from a Christmas tree branch).
  • Ready for hanging – with at least 6″ silver coloured picture frame wire securely attached. Blue or silver coloured ribbon is also acceptable.
  • Labelled with your name somewhere.

Have fun!

Please deliver decorations to Beverley Minster on Wednesday 5th December between 10am – 12pm (no later please), or to Mary Wells on Tuesday 4th December at 18 Manor Park, Beverley, HU17 7BS (email: marywells8@gmail.com). Please let us know if you would like to be a hub for artists to drop off their tree decorations before the Weds 5th deadline.

As always, the decorations will be taken away and kept by the committee, to be auctioned at our ERA Christmas Party on Friday 14th December. All money raised will to go to the charity nominated by the Minster. If you do not wish your decoration to be put in the auction, please let us know.

Thanks and all the best from Larry, Mary, Peter, Bryda, Lyn, Anne and Terry, your ERA committee.
