The 30th Annual Coggeshall Flower Festival will take place over the August bank holiday weekend in the beautiful Church of St Peter ad Vincula, which lies at the heart of the historic town of Coggeshall. This 30th anniversary year our spectacular floral interpretation depicts stories in the Bible about the life of Jesus, including his birth in a stable, his baptism in the river Jordan, his death on the cross and his ascension to heaven.

St Peter’s has established a well-deserved reputation for outstanding flower festivals and preparations for this year’s festival began back in January. 37 flower arrangers will work over 4 days to put the festival together, creating more than 140 arrangements in 28 displays.

The Festival also offers a treat for music lovers. Musical recitals will take place in the church during the weekend

Saturday 26th August at 7.30 pm there will be a concert of chilled out Jazz with Martin Dobson’s ‘Midnight Oil’ (tickets £12, Concessions £10, Under 16s £2.00).

Sunday 27th August, there will be a Sung Eucharist service at 10.30 am and a ‘Songs of Praise’ style service at 5.15 pm at which visitors will be most welcome.

Delicious homemade cakes and light lunches will be available in the Church for the duration of the festival and we will have our hugely popular preserves and produce stall again.

Entry is free – although donations towards the upkeep of the church will be warmly welcomed. Last year 2,100 people came to visit the Festival from all over the county and beyond.
