The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe, in Flowers!


Pickering Church

St Peter and St Paul’s Church, Pickering.

My favourite childhood book is coming alive, in flowers! The St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Pickering is holding a flower festival based on C S Lewis’s story, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

This beautiful, medieval church was originally built by the Saxons, then re-built by the Normans around 1140. Pickering Church is world famous for it’s remarkable medieval wall paintings. Although it’s a large church, it will be filled to the brim with flowers for this themed show.

Floral designers from all over Yorkshire & the North East of England will be participating in this unique flower show.

Father Pritchett said the flower festival would show traditional work and also contemporary design to make it a really exciting re-telling of this fantastic story. “This is an amazing flower festival and people will just be stunned when they come into church and experience it”.

I only wish I was in the UK so I could attend! An ancient church, beautiful flowers & the lion, the witch and the wardrobe, 3 of my favourite things! The show runs from today (Aug 26) to Sunday, September 4th. I’ll keep my eye out for images of the church in bloom!
