St Mary's Church Christmas Tree Festival: Sponsorship opportunities


Watford BID are delighted to support St Mary’s Church with its annual Christmas Tree Festival. e festival will take place 7th – 10th December, inside St Mary’s Church, with live nativity scene outside the church on the Saturday 9th. Now in its fifth year this community event aims to create the feel good factor at a hectic time of year.

50 x trees (4ft high + provided with fairy lights) are available for sponsorship by local businesses and organisations, at a price of £50. Businesses are free to decorate their tree in a creative way, in keeping with your brand, for instance last year Café Nero covered theirs in coffee cups! There is also space around your tree to promote your businesses with leaflets / Christmas catalogues, seasonal menus, or just general information about your organisation.

We will be helping the church to promote the event (to encourage visitors to the town to come to the festival) using our Watford BID and Watford For You digital channels and PR out in the local media. We would also encourage businesses to promote their involvement through their own channels.

You will also be invited to the opening celebrations on the Thursday evening – more info will follow on that event nearer the time. The church would love to see local businesses get involved and support this community event, it will offer your business some community engagement will creating the feel good factor.

Sponsorship applications need to be in by Friday 13th October – please contact Shirley on stirlingsk@hotmail.com
