A Winter Flower Festival showcasing the National Association of Flower Arranging Societies South West Area competitions takes place at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells from Friday, 7th until Sunday, 9th December, when visitors will be treated to elaborate floral displays, the largest of which will be up to two metres high, in a variety of themes from pantomime to ‘A Christmas Carol.’
There will also be an opportunity to watch skilled florists giving hands-on demonstrations with top tips for amateur florists. Each day will run from 10am to 4pm, as part of the ‘Christmas at the Palace’ event. The festival will include a photography competition with classes open to both adults and children. The rest of the palace will also be decorated in a variety of styles, and hand-made Victorian style decorations, many sourced from the palace gardens.
