Hemingford Abbots Biennial Flower Festival & Open Gardens

    Erika Brown who is a committee member for Hemingford Abbots Flower Festival and Open Gardens spoke on our “Over to You” programme on Friday 16th June about the impending event on the weekend of 24th & 25th June. This amazing festival only takes place every other year and involves just about everyone in the village. With the church decked out with more than 2,600 flowers and more than 20 gardens open to the public this is a great treat which almost rivals Chelsea itself!

The historic church of St Margaret of Antioch is transformed from the traditional 14th Century building being enhanced this year with displays of blooms which were inspired by William Blake’s famous Jerusalem hymn. This year’s display has taken the members of the Church flower Guild more than a year to design. A concert from the Tapestry Choir will be held in the church at 6.30pm on Saturday has drawn on appropriate music for a floral weekend.

  The open gardens, which come in all shapes and sizes, many of them sweeping down to the back water of the River Great Ouse are a delight for the avid gardener who cannot fail to find inspiration to take back home with them. Afternoon tea with homemade cakes and scones are also on offer in some of the glorious gardens. With music from a brass band in the Old Rectory and Morris Dancers performing outside the village pub and other locations these are just some of the delights available throughout the day. Other attractions include plant, craft and book stalls,historic car and motorcycle exhibition,beekeeping display, spinning and weaving demonstrations and river cruises

All in all a great local weekend. The gardens are open from 12 noon until 6pm and tickets/entry programmes cost £8 per day or £13 for both days with children under 18 free.
