Christmas Tree Festival
December 9th, 10th and 11th 2022 - Opening the festive holiday season and celebrating with the schools, their pupils and our other community organisations who create and display their trees.
The Festival also offers an opportunity to tour the Museum and talk to our archivists about the ‘stories of Chard’.
CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL
After two years the Christmas Tree Festival returned to Chard and the Museum. Trees and nativity scenes were created by local schools and community groups. Over 300 people visited the Festival over the three day period and helped the Museum raise over £600.
Thank you Doreen and her team for coordinatng and organising the Festival, and to Jenny Mellings and Somerset Artworks for the workshops they hosted on Saturday. We have the dates for the 2022 event and planning will start in September.
