St Andrew’s Church in Soham will be holding its first flower festival for more than 20 years over the bank holiday weekend.
As well as arrangements by the church flower arrangers; local schools, churches and other community groups will be creating displays.
Not all of the flowers will be real - some of the groups have made flowers from paper, wool and even food packaging.
Entry is free - donations welcome - and refreshments will be served on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and all day Monday.
Vicar at St Andrew’s, Tim Alban Jones, said: “A flower festival is a wonderful opportunity for us to express something of the joy and beauty of the created world in the magnificent building which we, perhaps, may take for granted.
“With the spectacular backdrop of St Andrew’s the flowers will be all the more glorious.”
The festival takes place from 9.30-11am and 2-5pm on Saturday, May 23, 11am-5pm on Sunday, May 24, and 10am-5pm on Monday, May 25.
