Featuring 71 trees the Christmas Tree Festival is a key fund-raiser for Minster and across the three days, around 3,000 people come to Minster to view the trees.
Speaking to HU17.net Carol said;
“Every year more and more people have wanted to be involved. We have reached a capacity now, and we have a waiting list for people who want to sponsor a tree.”
People come from far and wide to view the selection of trees that are sponsored and decorated by a host of local organisations, including schools and colleges.
“The first year we hosted it the event was featured in Yorkshire Life Magazine, so we got a lot of interest from people throughout the region.”
“We also pick up a lot of visitors from the Festival of Christmas, which takes place in Beverley this Sunday. They come along throughout the day to look at the trees which helps boost visitor numbers.”
The Christmas Tree Festival runs until the 14th December, and the entrance is just £2.
Tonight the tree sponsors will be invited to special reception at the Minster where they can view their trees while enjoying a glass of mulled wine.
