Dronfield is set for a riot of colour in the last weekend in June (26 to 28) as the town’s famous Feast of Flowers will see thousands of blooms festooned across town.

The event takes place across 14 churches with themes from parables to prayers and miracles to music. Organisers say there’s something for everyone at the Feast, and now, final preparations are now underway with every church in the Dronfield district taking part.

Organised by the Churches Together in Dronfield partnership, in addition to the floral displays, most churches will be providing refreshments, and there are also two walks on Saturday and Sunday taking in all the churches on the way.

The Feast of Flowers takes place every five years and this year is the 25thn anniversary. There is an opening event on Thursday June 25 at Dronfield Civic Hall at 7pm with a Gardeners’ Question Timer Forum with local experts.

Additional events connected with the Feast include a performance of The Mayflower, a play with music written and performed by members of Apperknowle Methodist Church on Sunday June 21 and a Choir Concert Finale at Dronfield Parish Church on the Sunday June 28.
