Flower Festival and Exhibition from 10.30am until 4.30pm in St Wenna Church (SatNAV PL30 5PS).  Admission is £2.50 per person.

Powerful and thought provoking floral arrangements, depicting the various aspects of WW1 - its brutality; the part women played; The Armistice and Peace, to name but a few, will feature in this Flower Festival.

The well known and established gardening radio panelist, George Kestell, appointed as artistic director for this Flower Festival, will work with a number of volunteers in staging these arrangements, with many being the ideas of the arrangers themselves.

Sit in wonder, reflect and give thanks to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice 100 years ago, so that we can enjoy our freedoms and liberties - something we all take for granted now perhaps?

Local businesses have sponsored the cost of the Flower Festival and we offer our profound thanks for their support.  Read all about them at the arrangements and in the programme, available on entry.

An exhibition, telling the stories of the local lads from St Wenn, who enlisted and fought in the Great War, will run alongside the Flower Festival in the Church. Parish Councillor, Tim Lock, has worked tirelessly in his research, which has taken him around the world, to find out what happened to these brave souls during and after the war!  Some extraordinary tales of their lives await you!

Take a look too for the marvellous quilt, commissioned by St Wenn Remembers, and lovingly designed and created by members of the St Wenn Quilting Group.  Stitched over the last year, this really is a must see!  We thank Jude, Lesley and team for this wonderful work of art!

St Wenn Remembers Pub Night - St Wenn Hall from 6.30pm to 11.30pm

In collaboration with the St Wenn Parish Society, we will be holding a Pub Night.  The theme is very much WW1 where you may find yourself entering a WW1 bunker with music from the era...there may even be a sing-along around the piano!  This is a light-hearted event, so if you feel like dressing up from the era - feel free, but it's not obligatory!!  Come along and enjoy yourself!

There is plenty of parking in the car park opposite the Hall.  Cash Bar only!
