Wedding Dress Flower Festival

You are invited to a unique flower display, recreating the flowers and displaying the wedding dresses from local people's weddings.  The church will be beautifully decorated, and there will be some fascinating displays of wedding dresses from different decades, together with photographs and the original bouquets recreated in fresh flowers by our own flower arrangers and some local florists.

The Flower Festival will take place over the Pentecost weekend – on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May, 10am to 4pm.  Admission will be £3 on the door, in aid of St Peter's Church.  Refreshments will be available to enjoy in the churchyard if the weather is fine (or inside if not!).  

Tickets for a special Preview Evening (with drinks and canapés) on Friday 18th May, 7pm to 9pm, are available for £7 from Mary Chamberlin. For contact details, please take a look at this Festival Poster.
