Flowers have been used through the centuries to decorate and enhance the beauty of this ancient building.

Flower designers and arrangers from throughout the area will come together for this event to create a breathtaking feast of colour and design. The array of magnificent displays will reflect both the splendour of the great nave and soaring transepts, while also retaining the simplicity of the medieval crypt.

A kaleidoscope of colour will meet visitors from the first moment that they enter the cathedral through the great west doors until they leave through the historic black and white gateway of the Bishop’s Palace, believed to be the country’s oldest continually-inhabited home.
