St Andrews Church, Colyton is to stage a flower festival from 19th – 22nd June 2014.
The title of the festival will be “Bridal Flowers & Fashion”. As the name implies there will be a wedding theme, with flower displays, bridal dresses and accessorises with particular reference to the bridal styles of the last 50 years. Honiton Museum has kindly agreed to loan some Honiton lace wedding veils as part of the exhibition.
The festival will be open from 10am Thursday 19th – Saturday 21st and from 10.30am on Sunday 22nd. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day in the church grounds. In addition concerts will take place at 7.30pm Wednesday – Saturday by Andrew Millington (Exeter Cathedral Director of Music), Nick Brown (St Andrews Director of Music) and the choir of St Andrews. During the daytime there will also be shorter impromptu recitals. More details of these musical events will follow later. The festival will conclude with a service of thanksgiving on Sunday 22nd at 6.30pm.
