A THREE day flower festival will be held in Otley next week.

The main event takes place at All Saints Parish Church from Friday, June 28 to Sunday, June 30.

Floral and craft displays inspired by the theme of ‘the nature and character of God and people’ will be available to view between 10am and 4pm on the Friday and Saturday and from noon to 4pm on the final day.

Entry is free though donations are welcome with proceeds going to Caring for Life (Leeds) and Kisiizi Hospital (Uganda), two charities which are currently being supported by the church.

There will also be a festival preview event on Thursday, June 27 which runs from 7pm to 9pm and costs £5.

The ticket price includes a drink, canapes and live music.

Tickets can be booked by sending an e-mail to info@otleyparishchurch.org or calling (01943) 465927.

Light refreshments meanwhile, along with the sale of books, cards and plants, will be available throughout the main festival. Last year’s flower festival at the church raised £800 for good causes.
