Festival goes for song

FLOWER festival organisers in Alfreton are going for a song.

For the second year running, they have chosen a song title as the theme of their annual event.

Last year’s festival at Alfreton Wesley Church was based on Eurovision hit “All Kinds of Everything” and this year’s two-day event, which begins on Saturday, has Abba’s “Thank You for the Music” for its title.

“Each of the 13 arrangements has a musical connection,” said one of the organisers.

On Saturday, the church is open from 10am to 5pm and on Sunday, the displays can be seen between 2pm and 4pm with special services at 10.45am and 6pm.
