THERE are just three days left to see the Festival of Cribs and Christmas Trees at St Mary Magdalene Church in Launceston, which includes around 50 trees and numerous cribs.

The festival was officially opened by the Mayor and Mayoress of Launceston, David and Carole Gordon, on Saturday and will remain open until the close of the late-night shopping evening on Friday.

The festival will be open from 10am until 4.30pm on other days. Admission is free but donations are welcomed for the St Mary's Ceiling Appeal.

St Mary's Choir gave a concert on Tuesday, entitled Christmas is Coming, set among the magical display of the trees.

The choir will be singing during the late-night shopping evening and the organisers are hoping that the church organ will also be played at various times throughout the week.

Teas, coffees and cakes will be served in the choir vestry throughout the days of the festival.
