Flower festival set to celebrate new church screen at Brockdish
Flower arrangers will be showing over 20 imaginative displays at the Brockdish Flower Festival on September 22 and 23.
The festival celebrates the history of the village church at Brockdish and the installation of a new hand carved screen, completing the 19th design of the church interior.
Views across Waveney Valley and surrounding countryside can be seen from the church tower for those who are prepared to climb the twisting staircase.
At the Old Rectory there will be a chance to see and buy a selection of sea paintings by the celebrated artist Maggi Hambling and woodcuts by the Royal Academy favourite Michael Carlo, and the three acre garden will be open to the public.
On Sunday at 6.30pm, Bishop David Gillett will lead a Songs of Praise in the church and will also dedicate the new screen, which was initially planned over 20 years ago.
