St Edburg's Christmas Tree Festival will be even larger this year, with 80 decorated trees filling the 900 year-old church.

Watch a video of the festival here. The trees have been sponsored and decorated by individuals, businesses and local organisations in support of the St Edburg's Foundation.

The festival was started in 2012 and has grown rapidly, becoming a fixture in Bicester's calendar of Christmas events.

This year the festival runs from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th December, concluding with a 'Carols in the Trees' service at 6. 00pm on Sunday. Revd Verena Breed, Rector of St Edburg's said: "Christmas trees are symbols of love, home and family.

We are delighted to welcome people to St Edburg's to share in this festival of beautifully decorated trees. "St Edburg's Church has been serving God and the people of Bicester for over 900 years.

It has a growing congregation with Sunday services including 8. 00am Holy Communion, a lively family service at 9. 30am and a more traditional Communion service at 11. 00am. The festival was due to run from 10am to 7pm on Friday and Saturday (December 12 and 13) and 12. 30 to 5. 30pm on Sunday (December 14).
