Drop in and share your ideas on the future realisation of a new Christmas Tree for Mountmellick!

Mountmellick Library : Tue Feb 20th, 2-3pm

The Valley Star Project - a reimagining of Mountmellick Christmas Tree through the lens of climate action  invites you to contribute your ideas on the realisation of a new Christmas Tree for Mountmellick. 

At the library you will meet project artist Martina Coyle who will gather your ideas, and also memories of the previous Christmas Tree. 

In year 1 of this ambitious project, the objective is to display Christmas tree prototypes at O'Connell Square in December 2024 - prototypes generated from local ideas, local creative making, and renewable lighting sources.

Year 1 is part of Mountmellick Christmas Tree Committee's ambitious plans to install a new and permanent 21st century climate friendly Christmas Tree by 2026. 

All welcome to participate and contribute their ideas and memories. 

To find out more about the project's programme in 2024, contact and follow the project on the Mountmellick Christmas Tree social media accounts - Facebook and Instagram.
