Christmas Floral Art Extravaganza
1st — 3rd December 2017
Wistaston and District Flower Club proudly presents 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' floral art exhibition at St. Bartholomew's Church (11am — 4pm on 1-3 December).
This 'first of its kind' event will see award-winning florists from across the region showcasing 12 unique Christmas floral displays — each representing one of the twelve days of Christmas. The exhibition is being supported by several local organisations, some of which are sponsoring the displays.
The event promises to be a 'spectacle for the senses' with celebrated local singer, Lucy Lockwood treating exhibition visitors to some mellow jazz numbers on 2 and 3 December.
A special evening event comprising music, canapés, wine and floral displays will also be taking place 7.30pm — 9.30pm on Friday 1st December. Tickets are already selling-out fast for this 'one night only' event.
Decorations for the Christmas tree, which will be an integral part of the exhibition, are being made by children from St Oswald's CE Primary School, Worleston, and a raffle and refreshments will be available throughout. The flower arrangements will be auctioned at 3.30pm on Sunday 3rd December.
All proceeds from the event are going to St Bartholomew's Church and Wistaston and District Flower Club.
