Ushaw Flower Festival takes off


Ushaw Flower Fest returns this September to a grand 500-acre country estate near historic Durham City.


The two-day festival runs from September 9-11 and will fill the halls, chapels and corridors of Ushaw Historic House with a floral celebration deep rooted in the local community.


Over 100 volunteer florists, professional and amateur – from flower clubs, community groups, churches and charities - have crafted arrangements that tell the story of County Durham’s culture, heritage, people and places – from tales of inspiring women to remembrance of those lost in World Wars and mining disasters.


Visitors will also be able to enjoy Autumn inspired flower arranging masterclasses running 7 – 10pm by Jonathan Moseley on the 9th and Andrew Grisewood on the 10th


Ushaw is a vibrant arts and heritage venue and was formerly one of the largest Catholic seminaries in Britain. It is well known for its Georgian and Victorian architecture, listed chapels and expansive grounds and gardens.


The Festival is included in the price of daily admission, the masterclasses cost from £15 - £25. For more information click here.
