Budding Christmas tree decorators sought

The Francis House Festival of Christmas Trees will be opening on Sunday 29th October at the Lowry Outlet, Salford Quays.

The ever popular display of decorated trees is now in its 11th year and we’re hoping to make 2017 our best year yet.

We’re on the look-out for more companies, social clubs, groups and supporters to be involved in this most festive of fundraisers.

We will supply an artificial tree and lights, you supply the creativity and decorate your tree in any theme of your choice.

If you wish to include your corporate identity then this can be a great advertisement, just remember the tree must be saleable!

Tens of thousands of pounds have been raised over the years through members of the public bidding on the Christmas trees which are on display until Sunday 10th December.

If you’d like to join an exclusive list of participants please contact Mary Gillatt before 20th October by emailing Mary
