THOUSANDS of eager visitors have queued this weekend to see the dazzling Festival of Flowers at Chichester Cathedral.
Crowds have been impressed by the colourful displays in what has been dubbed the ‘gold standard’ of flower festivals, an event held every other year and now in its tenth edition.
Chichester’s 900-year-old cathedral has been transformed with more than 90 stunning arrangements, all following this year’s theme, The Music Makers, with Jose Morum-Pound the designer.
A dazzling array of imaginative and beautiful flower designs has interpreted 12 centuries of music: from pop to plainsong, classics to jazz, sacred to secular, all in aid of the Chichester Cathedral Restoration and Development Trust.
This year more than 500 volunteers – including 250 accomplished flower-arrangers – have presented a spectacular event specially devised for the event’s tenth anniversary.
