Gwel an Bleujenn (View of the flowers)

Join us as we celebrate the beauty of blossom with our first blossom procession!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Join us as we process through the blossom, giving thanks to the flowers and the promise of the fruit that will follow. Gwel an bleujinn means 'view of the flowers' in Cornish.

Enjoy music by Rosie Fierek, poetry read by Robert Forshaw and dance by Moondance studios among the blossoming trees. Dancing and costumes encouraged!

After the procession, the garden team will be in the orchard to answer all of your blossom questions.
