Combe Raleigh will hold its third Christmas tree festival at the start of next month
The popular event is on from Friday, December 2, to Sunday, December 4.
The festival, based at St Nicholas’ Church, is open from noon to 6pm each day.
Combe Raleigh churchwarden and festival organiser Rosemary Mapleston said: “The church will be well worth a visit to view the variety of decorated trees on display.
“Four years ago, the village held its first festival of this kind and the church was full of beautifully adorned trees, bright with various ornaments and twinkling lights.
