Switch on the lights of the Big Christmas Tree outside Holy Cross Church Uckfield

The big Switch on of the lights on the Big Christmas Tree, outside Holy Cross Church Uckfield took place on Thursday evening by Dpt Mayor of Uckfield Cllr Jackie Love in advance of the fantastic Christmas Tree Festival which starts on Friday

There was mulled wine and carols, as the lights were switched on and Off the Wall Entertainment revealed their 2019 light display!

This was a beautiful and fun event led by Fr John , the wonderful Holy Cross Children’s Choir sang some festive favourites and members of Uckfield Concert Brass were on hand to help launch this year’s Festival of Christmas Trees!

As well as the usual festive musical entertainment in church, seasonal refreshments, hot lunches, handmade gifts and activities for children will all be taking places in the Belmont Centre. There are over 100 beautifully decorated trees! Admission is free but all donations will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks to everyone who has supported this wonderful annual event in any way.
