AboutAs May slips into June St Thomas's Church, in the heart of Salisbury, has organised a vibrant celebration of Flowers, Music and Art. The 'Spring into Summer Festival' is part of St Thomas's 'Quest 2020 Appeal' and is scheduled to run from 30th May to June 3rd. The Festival has attracted not only a wealth of local talent but has procured appearances from internationally recognised artists, performers and arrangers.
The Festival will be centred round St Thomas's Church and House and the organisers have sought to provide something for everybody, young or old. Not only will there be feasts for the eyes and ears with state of the art flower displays, paintings and sculpture to view and music to hear, but those who like to be creatively active can enjoy participating in the specially organised workshops. These include learning the skills of Chinese brush painting, pottery or how to write a novel!
A significant number of the events are free to attend, although the organisers are naturally seeking donations from those able and willing to give. Keynote events, workshops and concerts are entry by ticket only but the Festival will be great opportunity to see demonstrations by leading flower arrangers, hear the artistry of Nicholas Walker on the piano and listen to the vocal talents of the St John Singers and The Salisbury Cathedral Youth Choir. Art is on display and in some cases will be available for purchase.
Refreshments and light snacks will be served in the St Thomas's refectory.
