Tree festival

Experience our first Christmas Tree Festival set in the cathedral’s grounds with the medieval Minster as its backdrop.

The new festival will take place in a festive marquee by the South Piazza and feature trees decorated by local businesses, schools and charities.

See around 40 trees decorated to individual themes, vote for your favourite tree in our ‘best dressed tree’ competition and visit our activity marquee to write your own Christmas message on a tag to add to a tree there or inside the cathedral’s East End.

The festival will run daily from 18 November to 6 January (except Christmas Day) and admission is free although donations are encouraged. No pre-booking required.
