Floral art lovers have been enjoying a real treat as Salisbury Cathedral holds another spectacular five day flower festival from Tuesday 14 June – Sunday 19 June 2011.
Over 18,000 visitors were attracted to the cathedral’s last flower festival in 2008, with much praise for the quality of its artistry and creativity.
Internationally renowned floral judge, demonstrator, teacher and Chelsea Gold Medalist (2009) Michael Bowyer has again been invited to mastermind and design the festival.
National demonstrators and Chelsea Gold Medalists, Pam Lewis and Angela Turner, have assisted Michael to fill the iconic building with thousands of flowers and perfume, in an amazing array of colours and designs in a mix of contemporary, traditional and interpretative displays, all created by around 500 flower arrangers from churches and flower clubs.
For anybody who has not been able to attend this stunning event or for those who just want to remind themselves of the stunning creations; John Waddington of Nurseryfresh has created a gallery on his website.
