🗓️ Saturday 2nd – Monday 4th December 2023
The annual Christmas tree festival in Langton Matravers is always a treat to get you in the festive spirit.
St George’s Church is taken over on the first weekend of December for the three-day festival by community-decorated trees, each with an individual theme.
All are welcome to come and visit the church, meander through the magical trees and stop for a cuppa and a slice of cake.
There will be various musicians performing during the festival too – if you are part of a local musical group and would like to get involved, get in touch with the church to reserve an entertainment slot.
All proceeds from the festive event go to local charities – this year, Mosaic and the East Dorset & New Forest branch of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association.
Last year, donations and the sale of refreshments helped to raise over £1,500 for charity.
St Aldhelm Benefice serves the localities and churches of Langton, Worth Matravers and Kingston.

Pop along to the church any time between 10am – 5pm.
Refreshments will be served all day.
Sponsor a tree
If your local business, school or organisation would like to sponsor and decorate a tree:
- A five-foot tree is £25 and you can keep the tree after the event
- Tree-decorating is at the church on Friday 1st December
- Get in touch by filling in a form on the festival website: staldhelmxmastreefestival.wordpress.com/contact/
Any other help – especially cake donations to sell at the festival, musical performances, and other general help – is also welcomed.
