Our Christmas Tree Festival is due to be re-launched this December, rebranded as Trees @ the Tower. After a year’s absence we are keen to encourage individuals and organisations to place a tree into the Festival, to celebrate the start of the Advent season. 
Further information is available here
or email us at

The festival is a wonderful opportunity to raise much needed funds for charity. This year we are supporting Medical Detection Dogs, The Mayors Charity – Creative Computing, as well as the Church.
Trees @the Tower will be open to the public from Thursday 2 December until Wednesday 8 December this year with our popular Cafe offering drinks, light lunches and home made cake.


We are keen to attract as many participants as possible to the re-launch of this popular event. Participants will need to complete TWO forms, one with tree information, and another if they need to order a tree, stand and or leaflet stand for information they wish to share with our visitors.

Participant Forms
Participant tree information forms may be downloaded here for completion. 
If you wish to order a real tree, the tree order form can be downloaded here for completion.
Return your completed forms either via email to or via post to St Mary-le-Tower, Tower Street, Ipswich IP1 3BE. Please mark your envelope “Trees at the Tower”. 
The deadline for participating is Tuesday 16th November, when all forms must be received by. Payment must be via BACS and must be made by 30th November. Please ensure you mark it TaTT and add your name for identification.
