IS this the quirkiest Christmas tree in Worcestershire?

The mammoth curved lime green and red decked out in fairy lights and baubles is causing a stir at The Valley, Evesham.

Centre manager Paul James said he knew it would be "Marmite" but so far people seem to love it rather than hate it.

Families have been travelling to The Valley to take selfies with the 20 foot tree which features a festive favourite character who notoriously hates Christmas.

Mr James said: "Christmas is without exception our favourite time of the whole year, and we always put a considerable effort in creating a welcoming and festive atmosphere with our Christmas displays.


"This year's tree, in particular, has been a massive hit - it's so quirky and different that families have been lining up to take selfies and share amongst family and friends via social media.

"For me personally, putting a smile on people faces and bringing a slice of festive joy to people's lives makes me very happy; we are over the moon with the response."

Three Counties Christmas helped to create the Christmas tree which is topped with a glowing star.
