Supporting local charities

The  Festival began in 1996 and has since been able to raise nearly £100,000 for Island and national charities. The festivities traditionally start on a Wednesday with a tree lighting ceremony in Brighstone Church in aid of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. This event has attracted around 6,500 tourists each year.


If your organisation would like to display a tree at this year’s festival check out our Exhibitor Information page. Non-profit and registered charities can even display their tree for FREE.

Hundreds of entries are created and displayed by charities, clubs, schools, individuals, groups, and businesses, making this one of the biggest Christmas festivals in England and a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of your organisation.
