Lord Mayor’s Christmas Tree Festival Returns

The Lord Mayor’s annual Christmas Tree Festival will be back at Hull Minster next month.

Dozens of decorated trees will fill up the 700-year-old Church, from Tuesday 5 December to Saturday 23 December.

The Festival, which started in 2019, raises money for Hull Minster, as well as the Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal Fund, which is this year supporting Dove House Hospice and Hull4Heroes.

Businesses and organisations are invited to get involved, either by entering a decorated tree, or by sponsoring one for the event.

Individual entries are also welcomed.

The Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull and Admiral of the Humber, Councillor Kalvin Neal, said: “The Christmas Tree Festival is a great way to kick off the festive celebrations, and I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the decorations.

“We’re asking for donations of a minimum of £10 per tree, which will allow us to raise money for charities at a time of year when help is even more vital.”

Trees can be set up on Monday 4 December and will then need to be taken down on Monday 8 January.

Hull Minster is open from 10am-4pm Tuesday-Saturday, and entry for visitors is free.

To get involved in the event, or for more information, call the Civic Office on 01482 615093.
