Thousands of visitors to Festival of Flowers event at Leeds Castle have voted the display by The Dorchester’s Head Florist, Philip Hammond as their favourite design for 2019.
Philip’s design was sponsored by Meijer for the Queen’s Gallery and entitled ‘Dancing through the Delphiniums’. It attracted lots of attention for its vibrant colour, perfumed fragrance and show-stopping design.
The annual Festival of Flowers has become a firm favourite in the Castle’s calendar with prestigious International floral designers, visitors of all ages to the Castle and social media influencers!
Each year, the principal State rooms inside “the loveliest Castle in the world” are transformed through incredible floristry designed to a theme – this year ‘a Floral Party’ in recognition of the Castle’s 900th anniversary.
Across the six day event, the Castle welcomed over 21,000 visitors and people voted in the thousands for their favourite display – a very close race given the calibre of the designers this year.
