Flower Festival

Each year we hold a themed Flower Festival weekend in the church at the end of May.  The church is filled with lovely flower arrangements on each window ledge and on pedestals around the church, and accompanied by an exhibition in the Lady Chapel.  Our Flower Festival theme in 2017 was 'Jane Austen and Beetham in Regency times' to mark the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen
Several hundred visitors came to enjoy the flowers and the exhibition of Jane Austen books and artefacts reflecting her life and what was happening here in Beetham at that time

Our theme for the May Bank Holiday Flower Festival Weekend this year will be in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Beetham WI.  Entrance is free all weekend, and the church will be full of displays with each flower arranger making their own interpretation of the theme.  There will be an accompanying exhibition set up by members of the WI to mark the 100 years of the WI in Beetham and what was happening in the area throughout this period.  Refreshments will be available, and there will also be live music from the Beetham Community Band, Beetham Handbellringers, and many talented musicians from the congregation

Throughout the rest of the year, the church flower arrangers are busy keeping the Sanctuary flowers fresh, and creating special displays to mark various festivals during the year.  The rota for 2018 is shown below
