Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree

This Christmas Sheffield Catherdral will sparkle and shine with more than 30 beautifully decorated Christmas Trees….and there’s still time for your business to be involved.

The festival opens on 30 November, the same night as the Cathedral's Christmas light show and runs through to 2 January. During the light show the tree will be seen by thousands of people. 

Admission is FREE. Visitors will be able to vote for their favourite tree in return for a voluntary donation. The sponsors of the two best dressed tree will each receive a cash award. 

After the festival all the trees will be chipped and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Some of the cost to do this will be donated to The Children’s Hospital Charity by the chipping company.

This year’s Christmas Tree Festival is being sponsored by etiCloud and Utilita Energy. “The festival brings he Sheffield business community together at a special time of the year" says Simon Tomlinson, director of etiCloud. 

Callum Slavin, Team Leader of Utilita Energy Sheffield said: ““This is a wonderful way for our company to connect with the people of Sheffield. It gives us the chance to educate people about how to keep warm and cut their energy costs this winter, which is great. In-keeping with our ‘Wear Warm’ campaign, our tree will have mini Christmas jumper decorations that children can help themselves to and decorate at home ready for their own tree.”

Every tree is sponsored by a local business, school or community group. Sponsorship is £250 for a business and £75 for a school or community group. The Cathedral will provide the tree and the lights. Sponsors are asked to decorate their tree.
