Christmas Tree Festival 2017

By: Ian Wylie | November 30, 2017

The 2017 Corbridge Christmas Tree Festival inside St Andrew’s Church was truly stunning this year.

With a total of 5,312 visitors over four days.

You can now view photos of all 86 trees at the festival on this page with over 100 images posted here.

But photos alone do not do this magical event justice.

If within reach next year, you must visit the 2018 festival!

The dazzling 2017 festival was open from Friday Dec 1 to Monday Dec 4 inclusive – see the poster on this page for details of the event.

With thanks to Linda Hunter and everyone else at St Andrew’s, as well as the people behind each tree, for all of their hard work.

Judging of the trees was by the Hexham High School Art Department staff. Congratulations to those named below.

And if your tree – or favourite – missed out in the judges’ deliberations, remember it’s all subjective and the crowds who flocked to the 2017 festival voted all 86 trees winners!
