If you want to enjoy thisweek's Flower Festival in Caerphilly, but want to escape the crowds, then why not enjoy a special preview of this year's event the day before the big weekend!
On Friday 24th June Caerphilly's key churches will be opening their doors for locals and visitors to get a sneak preview of this years floral displays, ready for the annual Flower Festival on Sat 25th and Sun 26th. Five of Caerphilly's active churches will be showing magnificent displays relating to this years theme of 'nature meets industry'.
The event has evolved during its existence, with many themes being incorporated into the event, including last year's well-received 1940's street party. The event was a huge success with the participants really taking to the theme, and visitors flocked from all over to be part of the fun. This year's theme is 'nature meets industry' and will demonstrate how the area has developed through the years in its industry and natural landscape.
The churches put a great amount of time and effort into preparing these spectacular displays, and with this extra day on offer it provides them with the exposure they deserve. Come along and view the colourful materpieces and be the first to talk about these high quality exhibitions. Bring your camera along and take part in the photograph competition. Email your best pictures to email@example.com by 1st July to win some great prizes.
The churches will have various activities taking place during the event weekend, with Sunday services all being open to the public. Visit www.caerphilly.gov.uk/flowerfestival to view full details.
