The Ten Tree Trail, a touch of Christmas fun for families in Bath, has launched this week. Simply solve the clues to discover the trees around the city, each one individually decorated by different local businesses.
Each tree has been decorated in the style of a well-known Christmas tune. The challenge is to guess all ten songs. Once you have collected all the answers, take a photo by one of the trees and post it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram tagging @bathgiftcard #TenTreeTrail to be in with the chance to win a £25 Bath Gift Card.
“We are very happy that the trees are adding a festive touch to the city,” commented Allison Herbert of Bath BID. “Of course we hope that local families will enjoy discovering or rediscovering all the different corners of our beautiful city as they follow the Ten Trees Trail, and that people will take refreshments in our lovely cafes and restaurants, and do some Christmas shopping from the fabulously diverse range of shops as they go round.”
Ribbons & trimming gurus VV Rouleaux have taken on the tree in Bartlett Street. The Bath Artisan Quarter team are leading the charge on two trees in Walcot Street – one at either end. Bath Festivals and The Paragon School have decorated the tree on Southgate Street. Metro Bank has put their festive flair to the tree adjacent to their store and the Stable have artistically presented a tree for Kingsmead Square.
The Milsom Street tree has been bedecked by Jolly’s Department Store, the Saw Close tree has been decorated by the team at Century Casino and the one in St James Street by the team from the Bath Business Improvement District. The first tree ready is in the Upper Borough Walls and has been done by Nationwide Building Society.
Paper copies of the Ten Tree Trail map are available from shops across the city as well as the Nationwide Building Society, while the blue uniformed Welcome Ambassadors who will have copies with them.
