DIARMUID GAVIN TO OFFICIALLY OPEN ELY'S EAGERLY AWAITED FLOWER FESTIVAL

Published: 16 May 2018

TV personality and celebrity gardener, Diarmuid Gavin, will be making a special appearance at Ely Cathedral's Flower Festival, which takes place in June. Diarmuid will be guest of honour at the Festival's preview evening on Wednesday 20 June where preview ticket holders can enjoy a glass of champagne in the Bishop of Ely's beautiful medieval gardens and get a sneak preview of the magnificent floral displays before the event opens to the public on 21 June.

Known for his Irish charm and expert knowledge on garden design and flora, Diarmuid is the perfect guest to front Ely's Flower Festival which will include over 50,000 blooms transformed into 100 striking exhibits. "A flower festival is the perfect place for me. There are similarities with making a show garden, except with a garden you have a month to build it, these Flower Arrangers produce miraculous creations in a couple of days".
