How to take part

Customers can browse the trees, packed with fantastic gifts, either at our pop-up shop at Quayside MediaCityUK (prior to 5 December) or the magic of the Festival of Trees can be enjoyed online.


Place a bid on your favourite tree and whoever has the highest bid on each tree by closing time on Sunday 5th December, gets to take the tree home. (subject to our Terms of Service) Bidding starts at £50. All money raised will be used to support the work of Francis House Children’s Hospice.

To bid on a tree:

1. Create an account - we just need your name and contact details to let you know if somebody outbids you, or if you win.

2. View the product page of the tree you're interested in bidding on.

3. Enter your bid in the box and press 'bid now'. Your bid must be at least £10 higher than the current highest bid.

4. If you are lucky enough to win, you will receive an email from us on Sunday 5th December with an invoice. Once this is paid, we will be in touch to arrange collection of your Christmas Tree.
