Flower Festival at St Chads Cathedral, 'In the footsteps of our Lord'

Event information

Come and join us for the 2019 Flower Festival and help us make this an even more spectacular event than ever!

We are keen to encourage people of all faiths to join us to make this a truly ecumenical event. The set-up day will be Thursday 13 June from 9.30am until late. The judging will take place on Friday morning. Prizes will be presented on Sunday evening during our concert interval.

The theme is ‘In the Footsteps of Our Lord for all three categories: parishes, convents and flower clubs, primary schools and secondary schools. This is a very wide theme and may be approached in whatever way you wish.

The disciples followed Our Lord’s footsteps. St Paul and many other saints followed the path Our Lord had led. Think of the lovely Poem ‘Footprints’.

If you're interested in taking part please join us at a coffee morning on April 10th at 9.30am, at the Cathedral, and we can explain in detail all the arrangements - including display locations.
