St Patrick’s Cathedral to Host First Inner City Christmas Tree Festival

St Patrick’s Cathedral to Host First Inner City Christmas Tree Festival

St Patrick’s Cathedral is synonymous with the celebration of Christmas, with its rich music in the historic setting of the much loved building.

This year the cathedral will bring its celebrations to a new level and bring the magic of Christmas to even more people with a Christmas Tree Festival which will run throughout December and until the end of the first week in January.

It is the first festival of its kind in the inner city and the innovative and imaginative event will see local businesses, organisations and groups contribute a decorated Christmas tree or wreath.

Through sponsorship provided by generous donations the cathedral will engage with people of the community and enhance the social fabric of the church while at the same time raising funds to replace the roof of St Patrick’s Cathedral to ensure the building is available to be enjoyed for generations to come.

The Christmas Tree Festival will be launched on Friday December 1 at a ticketed event. Christmas Festival Family Nights will be held on the evenings of December 20 to 22 after Evensong with the Cathedral open to the public from 18.15 – 21.00 free of charge on these nights. The trees and wreaths will be displayed throughout the building. There will be a Christmas Gift shop open during this period.
