Join us for a week of floral beauty and stunning displays, as the biennial Fairfax House Festival of Flowers takes place across the long weekend in August.
Filling the magnificent historic interiors of the townhouse throughout, flowers and beautiful decorative objects will combine to create luscious and extravagant floral displays that pay homage to the Georgian era whist also celebrating the best of contemporary design and artistry.
The 2016 Festival of Flowers takes as its the theme Georgian Floral Delights. The House will be transformed by New Earswick Flower Club and friends whose floral creations will be inspired by the entertainments, pastimes and amusements of the period whether card playing, taking tea, making music or even horseracing on the Knavesmire.
Come and be entranced by the glorious and creative forms that this takes.
