Christmas trees fill Halifax Minster with joy and light

Christmas trees are filling Halifax Minster as their 2019 Christmas Tree Festival gets underway.
The brightly decorated trees are lighting up the Minster as they prepare to launch their Advent program. 
Vicar of Halifax, The Revd Canon Hilary Barber said: “Our Christmas Tree Festival has literally grown year on year, and is a signal that the Minster is beginning its preparations for Christmas.
“Once all the trees are in place and illuminated, it really is a magical sight, and we are grateful to all those local businesses and organisations, who this year have sponsored a tree. 
“It once again reinforces how the Minster is not only at the heart of the community, but that the Minster belongs to the community of Calderdale and its people.”
The Christmas Tree Festival is open to the public from Friday November 29 to Monday December 2.
The opening times are Friday, Saturday and Monday, 10am to 5pm, and Sunday, noon to 5pm.
