Coggeshall’s 32nd Annual Flower Festival ‘Songs of Praise’
The Parish Church of St Peter ad Vincula
Saturday 24th August – Tuesday 27th August 2019
10 am – 5 pm
11.45 am – 5 pm on Sunday

The 32nd Annual Coggeshall Flower Festival will take place over the August bank holiday weekend in the beautiful Church of St Peter ad Vincula, which lies at the heart of the historic town of Coggeshall.

A spectacular floral interpretation of ‘Songs of Praise’ will include hymns, ancient and modern, that we all know and love including, ‘On Jordan’s Bank the Baptist Cries’, ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ and ‘Onward Christian Soldiers’

St Peter’s has established a well-deserved reputation for outstanding flower festivals and preparations for this year’s festival began back in January. 35 flower arrangers will work over 4 days to put the festival together, creating more than 140 arrangements in 27 displays.

The Flower Festival also offers a treat for music lovers. Musical recitals will take place in the Church during the weekend and on Saturday 24th August at 7.30 pm there will be a concert given by Andy Wilsher – A Tribute to the Rat Pack and Michael Buble
(tickets - £12, Concessions £10, Under 18’s £2.00). There will be a Sung Eucharist service at 10.30 am and a ‘Songs of Praise’ style service on Sunday 25th August at 5.15 pm at which visitors will be most welcome.

Delicious homemade cakes and light lunches will be available in the Church for the duration of the festival and we will have our hugely popular preserves and produce stall again. Entry is free – although donations towards the upkeep of the Church will be warmly welcomed. Last year 2,200 people came to visit the Flower Festival from all over the county and beyond.
