Clayfield’s Christmas Cracker: St Mark’s Christmas Tree Festival

Here’s the scoop for all you festive fanatics and Christmas cheer chasers: St Mark’s Clayfield is running a Christmas Tree Festival, and guess what? You’re invited! 

Mark your calendars for 25 Nov 2023, because from noon until the stars come out at 7:00 p.m., it’s going to be a holly jolly hullabaloo.

Tree-mendous Displays and Market Madness

First up, prepare to gawk at Christmas trees that are more dressed up than a penguin in a tuxedo. These aren’t your average, everyday festive firs; we’re talking about a forest of fabulously fanciful trees that’ll have your eyes popping. 

And for those of you who love a good rummage, there’s a market that’s more packed than Santa’s sack. Local artisans are bringing their A-game with gifts and crafts so unique, even the elves would be jealous.

High Tea and Carol Capers

Feeling peckish? St Mark’s has got you covered with a high tea that’s so fancy, you might start speaking in Shakespearean English. Pinkies up, folks! And for the carol enthusiasts, warm up those vocal cords because there’s going to be carol singing. It’s the perfect chance to show off those shower-singing skills in public.

Sausage Sizzle and a Light Spectacle

What’s a party without food? There’s a free sausage sizzle, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love free food? These sausages are hot off the grill and ready to jump into your belly. As the evening draws in, prepare for the grand finale – the Christmas lights turning on. It’s like an early New Year’s Eve spectacle but with less ‘bang’ and more ‘twinkle.’

Join the Festive Frenzy!

So, Clayfield folks and nearby dwellers, don’t be a Scrooge and miss out on this festive fiesta. It’s a chance to kick off the holiday season with a bang, or at least with a lot of twinkling lights and a belly full of tea and sausages.
