This biennial event is organised by Chichester Cathedral Restoration and Development Trust and welcomes visitors from all over the world who come to experience what has been called the 'gold standard' of Flower Festivals.

This majestic nine hundred year-old Cathedral will be transformed with over eighty stunning arrangements all following the theme of the Festival's title: 'The Artist's Palette'. A dazzling array of imaginative and beautiful flower designs will interpret the theme to sensational effect. The theme will reflect artists represented in the Cathedral, local Sussex artists and other well-known artists.
