Flower and Art Festival Bibury
The Flower and Art festival is open on Friday 14th, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each day at the St Mary the Virgin Church in Bibury.
This year the Flower Arrangements will be based on a book title of the arranger’s choice, such as “The Hungry Caterpillar”, “Far From The Madding Crowd” and “Culpepper’s Herbal”. The arrangers are all based in Bibury or neighbouring villages. Flowers are chosen individually to represent the atmosphere and colour of the books.
We also hold our annual art exhibition at this time, exhibiting the artistic talents of many local amateur “painters” using many different medians from acrylic to water colour, oil, glass ceramic, paper and needlework. Some works are re-produced in card form, but most work is for sale.
All are invited to join us. Entry is free, although all donations are very welcome. Refreshments will be available.
Profits from the exhibition go to the Church Fund for the upkeep of our very historic building.
Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a short drive from "The Capital of the Cotswolds", Cirencester.
Bibury was once described by William Morris (1834-96) as "the most beautiful village in England". In fact, Fox News says that Bibury is one of the world's most picturesque villages, and an article on the Huffington Post website (1st May 2014), titled "The Most Charming Towns In Europe You'll Want To Visit ASAP", mentioned Bibury.
And the cottages of Arlington Row are often referred to as the most photographed and beautiful cottages in the country.
Even more so when they are "photobombed" by a little yellow car!

Information for residents of Bibury and Bibury visitors
Attractions and things to see in Bibury include Arlington Row, a row of weavers cottages built of local stone next to the River Coln, the Bibury Trout Farm and the Saxon Church, the Church of St Mary.
The north Chancel wall of the Church is home to a stained glass window which was designed in 1927 by Karl Parsons and was featured in the 1992 Christmas stamp set issued by the Royal Mail.
The River Coln flows through Bibury sandwiched between the main village street and an expanse of boggy watermeadow known as Rack Isle. With Arlington Row as a backdrop, it makes one of the most picturesque scenes you will find in the Cotswolds.
You can also find Bibury information on the Cotswolds Web Site.
