People can kick-start festive preparations by displaying their very own Christmas tree creation at the Red House Glass Cone this winter.
The Christmas Tree Festival, which runs from Sunday November 18, will transform the Wordsley visitor attraction into a winter wonderland.
Groups and businesses are asked to provide uniquely decorated trees for the display, which will help to raise money for the Mayor of Dudley’s three chosen charities through donations. It is free to enter a tree and anyone in the local community is welcome to take part.
Councillor Keiran Casey, cabinet member responsible for tourism, said:
We held the first Christmas Tree Festival at the cone last year and it was huge success, encouraging creativity from local schools, groups and businesses.
I am delighted that the event is planned again for 2018 and I would encourage local people to take part and help transform our visitor attraction once again.”
Red House Glass Cone is based at High Street, Wordsley, DY8 4AZ. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm and Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 4pm and admission is free (fees may apply for some activities). Well-behaved dogs are welcome on site.
