Welcome to the Pocklington Flower Festival website.
The Festival is a very ambitious project involving 51 designs created by some of the leading floral designers in the country. The internationally acclaimed floral artist, Andrew Grisewood, is leading a large team of skilled individuals who together are aiming to create an event with a stunning visual impact.
Large areas of the Nave, Transepts and Chancel of the medieval church of All Saints Pocklington will be taken up with floral arrangements commemorating the centenary of the ending of World War One. Images and memorabilia researched and provided by the local history society will also be displayed.
Over 2000 woollen poppies have been knitted to dress the six stone pillars and ceramic poppies are being made to be displayed and then given at a Civic Service on 11 November to families of those who gave their lives.
We look forward to seeing you at the Festival.
