The Exchange Blackburn Christmas Tree Festival

The Exchange Blackburn are hosting their first Christmas Tree Festival!

The festival, themed ‘Decorations through the Decades’, is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and takes place from 4pm on Saturday 25th November 2023 to coincide with ‘From Broadway to Blackburn: Christmas Lights Switch On Spectacular’.

It continues on Sunday 26 November and also runs on Saturday 2 & £ December.  Businesses, groups, artists and schools are invited to create an historic tree which celebrates eras of The Exchange’s history dating back to the opening in 1865.

A small number of funded trees are still available – businesses can receive £100 towards their tree, decorations and craft materials for their creation.

If you are interested in finding out more about the event or would like to create a tree as part of the Festival, please contact Caer Butler at
