The Festival of Flowers is a four-day event in the setting of Chichester’s almost 950-year-old Cathedral. It’s taking place from Wednesday, June 4 to Saturday, June 8

Visitors to the festival will have the opportunity to experience 60 floral arrangements, handcrafted by talented florists and flower enthusiasts from across the county.

Sandra Dean, Chair of the Felpham Flower Club was designed this scene, commended the event. She said: “What’s great about this event for us is that people come and see what we do and want to get involved themselves.

"When I design these displays, I do it with beginners in mind, so that whatever your skill level, you’re able to be a part of it.

"It’s amazing, and I can’t the fishes that were created by the Aldingbourne Trust members are just fantastic.”
