Chichester Cathedral Restoration & Development Trust Launch their Festival of Flowers 2012 and announce Paula Pryke as their Patron.

On 12th July 2011 Chichester Cathedral Restoration & Development Trust announced the launch of their 2012 Festival of Flowers in the gardens of the Royal Chantry in the Cathedral Cloisters.

Alison Godfrey, Director, said: "We are delighted to be launching our ninth Festival of Flowers!  We are especially proud to annouce Paula Pryke as our Patron.  Paula is an internationally renowned florist who is famous for her beautiful and innovative floral creations and it is wonderful she will be part of our team. 

As well as welcoming Paula, we are delighted that Jean Jackson will be Chairman of the Festival and Diana Cave will be our Flower Designer.  The theme in 2012 will be 'Every Book Tells a Story' and with more than 60 book titles being interpreted in flowers throughout the Cathedral it will prove to be, as described in the Church Times, yet another ' Gold Standard' Festival.

We have over 150 flower arrangers and more than 300 volunteer helpers who will be working with us from now until next June - we really are a very large family!  Once again we are really looking forward to welcoming many thousands of visitors to the Cathedral to join us in 2012."

Paula Pryke was present at the launch and shared her enthusiasm for flowers with the arrangers who were present, also at the launch was the Dean of Chichester, the Very Reverend Nicholas Frayling, who welcomed the arrangers and thanked them for once again taking part.
