A new and exciting floral event, the first of its kind in the UK, will take place this summer at Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire.
During three fun-packed and inspiring days, stars of the floristry and flower arranging worlds will converge on this stunning Grade I-listed house for a celebration of all things floral.
Chicheley, the countryside site of the Royal Society, will be decorated with blooms throughout to enchant and impress, showcasing the very best of floral design.
Top international designers – Gregor Lersch from Germany, Mark Pampling from Australia, Damien Koh from Singapore, Moniek Vanden Berghe from Belgium, Sergey Malyuchenko from Russia, and Robert Koene from Greece – will give free demonstrations throughout the three days.
British designers will take part in Best of British showing to advantage the vast range of beautiful fragrant flowers grown in the UK.
And for those who want to have a go themselves, there will be lots of fantastic workshops, including Getting Going, led by Judith Blacklock.
The event will stage several inventive competitions. Ready Steady Arrange sets the men against the ladies in a challenge to create fabulous work using the best of British-grown flowers.
In Dressing the Tree, designers are invited to decorate 13 of Chicheley’s majestic trees in original and innovative ways.
Food and drink will be available, including picnic hampers that can be pre-ordered. Running from the 5th to 7th August, this looks set to be the first of many Floral events at Chicheley Hall.
