The DEERHURST FLOWER FESTIVAL has been taking place in one guise or another for longer than most of us can recall. Its present format (every other year,during August Bank Holidays) dates back to the 1980s when a parishioner thought it would be memorable way to celebrate her silver wedding with a special floral event at the church. The formula was so successful that we have repeated the festival biennially ever since.
Visitors come from far and wide to visit the festival and it has become a regular fixture on many calendars. The local communities of Deerhurst and Apperley are very proud of what we achieve over the weekend and are pleased to be able to share this with you.
The theme for 2018 is ‘A Moment in Time’ giving our talented flower arrangers, most of whom live locally, plenty of scope to create some imaginative and original flower displays – using some terrific props too!
Visitors will be treated to a host of magnificent floral displays depicting momentous events. These include the Big Bang, the Eruption of Vesuvius and Armistice Day, as well as important moments in everyone’s lives, such as a Christening, a child’s First Day at School, and a couple saying “I Do”. Plus many more for you to discover when you visit.
