A festival of flowers inspired by poetry is taking place at Guildford Cathedral this week. Mike Ellis of Ginger Cat Photography took these photos on Wednesday as flower arrangers were putting the finishing touches to their displays.


On of the most innovative and respected florists in the world, Paula Pryke, is the designer for the event. She has been working with florists and flower arrangers from local parish churches, flower clubs, florists and floristry schools to transform the cathedral into a colourful garden of more than 50 stunning floral arrangements.


A day at the gala is priced at just £8 per person and is open from 10am to 5pm with last entry at 4pm from today (Thursday, June 6) to Saturday, June 8. Purchase of a ticket to the event will give entry to:

•           The flower gala to view the stunning floral arrangements within the beautiful cathedral building
•           The marquee, an exciting retail space where there are a variety of unique and special gifts on sale
•           The Rose Cafe offering light refreshments and with wonderful views over the town of Guildford
•           The Cathedral Refectory serving an array of different hot and cold refreshments throughout the day
•           Guildford Cathedral gift shop
•           Access to and from Guildford town centre using a free Arriva flower bus service
•           A hospitality marquee on the front lawn offering a restaurant service for lunches
