‘For All the Saints’
Saturday 25th August – Tuesday 28th August 2018 10 am – 5 pm (except Sunday 11.45 am – 5 pm)
The 31st 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 year our spectacular floral interpretation depicts stories about the lives of saints, including St John the Baptist, St George and St Osyth. St Peter’s has established a well-deserved reputation for outstanding flower festivals and preparations for this year’s festival began back in January. 35 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 and on Saturday 25th August at 7.30 pm there will be a concert of traditional New Orleans Jazz with the Frog island jazz band (tickets - £12, Concessions £10, Under 16s £2.00). There will be a Sung Eucharist service at 10.30 am and a ‘Songs of Praise’ style service on Sunday 26th August 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 2,200 people came to visit the Festival from all over the county and beyond.
