Tickets for Lincoln Cathedral’s much anticipated Flower Festival – Vision 2021 – are now on sale.
To celebrate the launch there is a special ‘early bird’ offer available for those who purchase their tickets to the event before 27 August.
Originally due to take place this summer, the event had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and will now take place from Thursday 29 July to Monday 2 August 2021.
Visitors will be able to enjoy more than 130 spectacular arrangements in the stunning setting of Lincoln Cathedral. The theme for the flower festival is ‘Vision’ and the displays will celebrate the life and vision of St Hugh, Bishop of Lincoln from 1200 to 1220 who was responsible for the rebuilding of Lincoln Cathedral following an earthquake in 1185.
Other notable visionaries who have made a significant impact on Lincolnshire and beyond will also feature in the stunning floral creations, with displays covering the arts, film, fashion, history, world exploration and more; there will be something for everyone, from the Pilgrim Fathers journey to the New World, to Harry Potter.
The early bird ticket offer which runs from 12 to 26 August give 20% off standard ticket prices, making the event a great value day out as well as an inspiring celebration of creativity and ingenuity. An adult ticket will be just £12 rather than £15, and children under can attend the event for free.
A special preview evening will take place on Wednesday 28 July, where visitors can enjoy drinks and canapés whilst getting the exclusive opportunity to see the beautiful blooms on display before the event open to the public.
Visitors are also invited to a ‘Musical Meander’ on Friday 30 July which will include musical accompaniment from a selection of talented musicians and tour around the Cathedral for guests to take in the colourful arrangements and learn about the themes behind them.
