For four days in June, the magnificent mediaeval Cathedral in Ely will provide the perfect setting for the East of England's largest flower festival.
With the theme 'In the Beginning' a mass of flowers will transform the Cathedral's interior into a stunning spectacle depicting the Creation. Over 75 displays will represent the land, sea, sun, moon and the many creatures associated with it. A 'river' of water and flowers will snake down the Nave, culminating in spectacular displays under Ely Cathedral's world famous Octagon Tower.
