More than 220 arrangers from 38 flower clubs from the diocese worked on the festival!
Ely Cathedral’s eagerly awaited Flower Festival returns and promises to be one of the most spectacular events in East Anglia. Attractions include eye-catching displays, musical recitals, floral demonstrations and a gift and craft marquee. The Festival’s Creative Director is Chelsea gold medal winner, Roger Woolnough. Roger was part of the design team for Westminster Abbey’s Festival of Flowers and was the mastermind behind Ely Cathedral’s highly acclaimed 2013 Flower Festival, ‘In the beginning’.
Did you know that:
We attracted just shy of 20,000 visitors!
The Very Rev Mark Bonney, dean of the cathedral, said it was “nearly double” the number of visitors hoped for and he was “immensely proud”.
The festival took a year to prepare and included 80 floral arrangements depicting the creation of the world.
The exhibits were designed by East Anglian flower arranger Roger Woolnough, a gold medal winner at both Chelsea and Hampton Court flower shows.
More than 220 arrangers from 38 flower clubs from the diocese worked on the festival.
“It was a tremendous team effort across the board and I am immensely proud of what people have achieved,” added Dean Bonney.
