On Saturday 5 December, the Mistletoe Festival will take place in the Worcestershire town of Tenbury Wells to celebrate the importance of the plant?locally, nationally and worldwide.
The event will feature the traditional crowning of Tenbury?s Mistletoe Queen, Santa?s Parade and a lantern procession, as well as a free-to-enjoy programme of storytelling, poetry, music, visual arts and street entertainment.
Caroline Palethorpe, festival Organiser for the Association, said: “Mistletoe harvested in Worcestershire and Herefordshire travels all over the world and this gives Tenbury Wells an international name.?
The festival will feature the Vamos Theatre bringing fun, frivolity and just a little mayhem to the streets. A Winter Vintage Craft Fair will be held throughout the afternoon and many independent local retailers will stay open for late night shopping.
