Ushaw Flower Fest, Durham 2022
September 9, 2022 - September 11, 2022
Free – £8
Ushaw Flower Fest returns this September to a grand 500-acre country estate near historic Durham City. The three-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.
More than 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 by Jonathan Moseley and Andrew Grisewood.
