Grenoside Christmas Tree Festival & Trail 2021

Many, many thanks to everyone who has helped run, taken part in or supported the Grenoside Christmas Tree Festival and Trail this year!
There have been some fantastic entries, but all the trees have made Grenoside look a warm and cheerful place to live and visit this December.
Although voting has finished all the trees will be lit until the end of December, so you can still walk the trail and enjoy the lights!
You can pick up a programme (containing details of where the trees are located plus a map) from The Old Harrow, The Old Red Lion or Grenoside News, or download from here.

Grenoside Christmas Tree Trail

As last year, we want families and businesses to get involved by decorating and theming Christmas trees outside their premises and homes. The Trail will run for the whole of December, with voting for the public’s favourite tree from the 4th to the 18th. Entry is open to everyone in Grenoside – families or businesses can decorate a tree in their garden, either a traditional Christmas Tree bought for the trail, or an existing tree/bush.

Christmas Tree Festival in St Mark’s Church

Open to all local organisations and businesses to enter a Christmas Tree to showcase what they do, who may not be able to enter a tree outside any premises – or would just prefer to be inside. The festival will take place from 4th – 5th December.

Launch Weekend: 4th – 5th December

As well as the Christmas Tree Festival in the church, the Reading Room on School Lane will be open for refreshments, and down at the Scout and Guide HQ on Saltbox Lane they’ll be running a weekend long Christmas Fair with stalls, refreshments, and the chance to visit Father Christmas.

Carol singing and results!

In the late afternoon of Sunday 19th December, we’ll be holding a candle-lit carol singing and results ceremony.

We’re hoping that local pubs and cafes will get involved and be able to offer ‘refreshments’ of any sort during the event. We know some of us would have liked to be able to stop and warm up whilst walking the trail last year!

As last year there will be a small charge for a programme and buying a vote – we’ve raised over £5000 for local charities over the last few years.

Entering a tree for either the Trail or the Festival is entirely free, and we’ll let you know shortly how to enter!
