Deck the Halls: A Winter Flower Festival


A Winter Flower Festival, showcasing the NAFAS South West Area Competitions will take place in early November.

Visitors will be treated to fantastical and elaborate floral displays, the largest of which will be up to two metres high, in a variety of themes.

The Medieval Undercroft of the Palace will be filled with designs on a pantomime theme, whilst other rooms will be based on the concepts of “Winter Fantasy” and “A Christmas Carol”.

During the long weekend, there will also be an opportunity to watch skilled florists giving hands-on demonstrations with top tip for amateur florists. The festival will also include a photography competition with classes open to both adults and children.

Included in standard admission, event during opening hours.
