  • Christmas Tree Festival 2017

                 & Church Banner Exhibition

       St James the Less Church, North Lancing

    We will be holding a Christmas Tree Festival and Church Banner Exhibition between Friday 1st December and Sunday December 3rd 2017. We will be charging for admission to the event.

    Opening times:-

    Friday 6.00pm-8pm, Saturday 10.00am-4.00pm, Sunday 2.00pm- 4.00pm

    We hope to fill the Church with lots of decorated Christmas Trees displayed by groups, businesses or schools from the Parish. In the Hall will be an impressive set of hand made Church Banners. We are keen to welcome as many people to see the displays as possible in the Parish Church and in the Parish Hall. Refreshments will be available.

    If you either as a group, business or school would like to display a tree at the Festival the following information will help you:

    1. There is a minimum charge of £5.00 for displaying a tree at the Festival.
    2. You may use a real or artificial tree-we suggest no taller than 1.25cms (six foot). Each exhibitor may use any theme to decorate the tree. You may wish to advertise or promote yourself by putting publicity material around the tree. Please tell us in advance if you are bringing a pop-up banner so we may allocate space accordingly.
    3. Lights (battery or mains operated) may be used on your tree. We ask that flashing or musical lights are not used and that all lights conform to British Safety Standards.
    4. The trees should be set up either on:

           Wednesday November 29th between 6.00pm and 8.30pm

           or Thursday November 30th between 9.15am-12 noon or 2-5.00pm

           The church will then close until the evening preview.
