Treefest is a spectacular festive display of Christmas trees held in the Gothic splendour of St Mary Redcliffe Church. Each year local organisations are invited to get involved by entering a Christmas tree and decorating it in a style of their choosing. This offers local charities, schools, businesses and other organisations a great opportunity to tell local people about their services, causes or activities, while helping to raise money for good causes. There’s also a varied musical programme and a chance for visitors to vote for their favourite tree.
Treefest has become increasingly successful over the last three years, attracting 1000s of visitors from far and wide and helping to raise valuable funds for local charities. This year the event will support St Mary Redcliffe's work in the community and this year's guest charity Bridges for Communities.
Bristol Greenpeace has submitted an entry that aims to highlight the many alternatives to single-use plastic items.
