The Rotary Club of Bridlington is holding its popular annual Festival of Christmas Trees over the first two weekends in December.
This is the seventh year of the festival and the opening days will be Friday 6th December to Sunday 8th and then Friday 13th Dec – Sunday 15th.
Once again, the venue will be St John’s Burlington Methodist Church on St John’s Street in Bridlington.
