TICKETS are now on sale for one of Worcester's most popular Christmas events.

Every year Worcester Cathedral hosts the Christmas Tree Festival, which sees dozens of decorated trees set up in the medieval cloister.

This year's festival runs from December 1 to January 2, with tickets now on sale.

Val Floy, chief operating officer at the Cathedral, said: "The sparkling Christmas trees are a wonderful sight to be enjoyed by all the family.

"Advent and Christmas are busy times at the Cathedral, so we have taken the decision to ticket some of the dates for the Christmas Tree Festival again this year, to ensure everyone’s safety.

"Our Christmas Tree Festival is very popular, and we recommend booking a timed entry slot to visit to avoid disappointment.

"We look forward to welcoming visitors as part of Christmas 2021 at Worcester Cathedral.”

The trees are designed by local schools, charities and businesses, with entry on a free-flow basis from 10am until 5pm from December 1 to 5. This rule will also apply on all Sundays.

No tickets are required on these days, but numbers will be regulated inside the cloister, so queues are likely.

From December 6 to 23 entry to the festival is by pre-booked ticket, with free-flow entry returning from December 24 to January 2.

Entry to the Christmas Tree Festival, either free-flow or with a ticket, is free of charge, and donations are welcomed to help support the work of the Cathedral.
