Unfortunately due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Flower Festival. We hope to hold it at the same time next year, with the same theme of The God Who Speaks.
All are welcome to visit the three-day Flower Festival at St Chad’s Cathedral.
This year’s theme is The God Who Speaks: The Year of the Word and floral displays will have a focus on St Matthew’s Gospel.
The flower festival is organised by St Chad’s Cathedral Association.
It is open to the public and entertainment will take place at various times. Refreshments will also be available.
Three judges have been appointed and will award prizes to the winning displays.
Visitors are welcome on Friday 12, Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 June from 9.45am. A £3 donation is invited for a programme which guides visitors around the cathedral.
Saturday – During the 4.15pm Mass the Youth Choir will sing.
Saturday – 6pm. The choir from St Mary’s Anglican Church, Moseley, under their director Mike Perrier, will perform a concert of light music.
Sunday – 11am Sung Mass. With St Chad’s Singers under the direction of Professor David Saint and organist Nigel Morris. The Mass will be said for St Chad’s Cathedral Association.
Sunday – 5pm. We have our closing concert performed by the Birmingham Schools Wind Orchestra under the direction of Adrian Taylor with Professor David Saint on the organ. During the orchestra’s break in each half we have a young professional soprano from London, Aimee Presswood, with her choice of songs. After the concert everyone is invited to the Grimshaw Room for wine and canapes. The draw for the Cathedral Association Draw takes place with a variety of magnificent prizes. There is also a bottle stall.
Food and drinks are on sale throughout the day, every day, in the Grimshaw Room. Provided by the committee to boost funds for the cathedral.
