Christmas tree...


Saltaire, unlike Shipley, has a real Christmas tree, on the lawn outside the Victoria Hall. It's not very big (or maybe it just looks small against the huge building) but it is REAL. People gathered on Sunday to see the switching-on of the lights. There were a few Christmassy stalls inside and plenty of mulled wine to drink. Hall Royd Brass Band played carols. Everyone stood around and got cold.... In fact I got so cold I went home before they'd even switched the lights on. Tch!

I will go back one evening and take a proper photo, I promise.

  1. Don't blame you going home rather tan waiting in the cold. I wouldn't like that , although it would be a welcome break from our heatwave. It was 39°C today. The real tree will be a pretty picture when the lights are on. The lights on the building are nice too.

  2. Nice to see this. It seems to be very cold in England this winter. Stay warm.

  4. The beautiful building would almost outshine the tree.

  5. Yes, please don't get ill for us! You'll go later and picture lights, Christmas time is only beginning. I prefer a real tree, that's sure!

  6. You did give us a good "teaser" shot. Now we will await another shot, of the lit tree.
