The 12th annual Beverley Minster Christmas Tree Festival is set to captivate even more visitors this December, marking the official start of Christmas in Beverley. This 10-day event, hosting the Made in East Yorkshire Christmas market, promises to be the largest and most impressive yet.
Renowned for being Yorkshire’s largest Christmas tree festival, Beverley Minster is gearing up for a remarkable showcase in 2023. The medieval church will be adorned with an unprecedented number of 125 displays, all creatively decorated by local organizations. Last year’s diverse array of tree decorations, from crocheted bras to cans of beer and unique items crafted from hedgerow-foraged materials, showcased the individuality of each sponsor.
Adding to the excitement, this year’s festival introduces extended opening hours and a special quiet session tailored for neuro-diverse visitors who might find the usual event crowds overwhelming. These additions aim to ensure everyone can enjoy the festivities in a comfortable setting.
The Beverley Minster Christmas Tree Festival has become an eagerly anticipated event, signaling the commencement of the Christmas season in the area. With the addition of the Made in East Yorkshire Christmas market, this 10-day celebration is expected to draw even more attention this December.
In its 12th year, the Beverley Minster Christmas Tree Festival is primed to outdo its previous editions. The stunning medieval church, already renowned for hosting Yorkshire’s biggest Christmas tree festival, will dazzle with an increased number of trees, each uniquely adorned by local organisations.
Last year’s festival featured an impressive array of 125 displays, showcasing a variety of decorations that depicted the distinct focus of each sponsor, ranging from crocheted bras to Christmas puddings and even art crafted from locally foraged materials. This year, the festival will introduce extended opening hours and a designated quiet session to accommodate neuro-diverse visitors who may struggle with the typical crowds and noise of the popular event.
A post from Beverley Minster said: “We’re really delighted to announce that the 2023 Christmas tree festival is going to be bigger than ever before. So many local groups, businesses and charities have been in touch wanting to sponsor a tree this year that we’ll be squeezing a few more into the Minster from December 1 to 10.
“As every tree is uniquely decorated by each sponsor or nominated decorator we can’t wait to see the designs they come up with. And once every tree is lit with twinkling fairy lights, the Minster is going to look amazing.”
