Exhibition with Flowers

Our 2019 Flower Festival will take place from 1 – 6 June.  The theme this year is ‘Colours of the Wind’. The title is taken from a song in the Disney film ‘Pocohontas’ and among the displays there will be references to ‘Candle in the Wind’, the Red Arrows , Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and the ‘Lungs of the City’. Opening times are as follows:

Saturday 1st 10.00am – 5.00pm
Sunday 2nd 11.30am – 6.00pm
Monday 3rd – Thursday 6th 10.00am – 5.00pm

Admission and parking are free.  Delicious light refreshments are available in the adjacent Boniface Centre.

We are pleased to be able to offer two concerts this year.  On Saturday at 7.30pm the Tedburn Community Choir will be entertaining us with an evening of popular music.  There will be a charge for this, details to be confirmed nearer the time. We are also delighted that Crediton Town Band will be performing on Wednesday at 7.00pm.  There is no charge for this.
