St Mary’s Church in Thirsk will be celebrating Christmas this year with a special exhibition in the 15th century church.

Christmas Wonderland, the ninth annual community Christmas tree exhibition, will be held from Saturday December 1 until Sunday December 9 from 10am–4pm, except on Sundays when it is open 12noon–4pm.

Admission to the exhibition is free but donations to church funds are always welcome.

Many local businesses, organisations, churches and individuals are busy decorating trees for the exhibition.

Visitors to the exhibition on Monday December 3 will also have the pleasure of a special lunchtime organ recital. This will be given from 12.15–12.45pm by the Archdeacon of Cleveland, the Venerable Paul Ferguson FRCO, a former organ scholar at New College, Oxford. Refreshments and soup lunches will also be available in the Crypt.

Julia Smith, St Mary’s Church media officer and organiser of the exhibition said: “St Mary’s Church is such a beautiful setting for this special Christmas tree exhibition.

“The exhibitors always show so much imagination and creativity making this an exhibition which all the family will enjoy.”
