Heartwarming Christmas Tree Festival

There is a lovely display of Christmas trees in the centre of Kirkwall.

The trees have been decorated by Youth groups and Third Sector organisations in Orkney.

Located in the courtyard of Tankerness House (Orkney Museum) it is accessible to all.

The Christmas Tree Festival is in its first year and it is hoped that this is the start of an annual event with more groups taking part. This year the groups include:

  • Women’s Aid Orkney
  • Youth Cafe
  • Young People’s Befriending Project with Connect
  • Pupils from Kirkwall Grammar School
  • Ypeople
  • Stromness Youth Clubs

And here’s a wee video of the display.
