Blackburn Cathedral Flower Festival had a surprise visitor to Day 1 of the preparations of the event which opens to the public on Thursday 23rd June.
Patrick Grant, fashion designer and judge on the Great British Sewing Bee, took time time out of his busy schedule to call in at the Cathedral to see how the event was taking shape.
Organiser Karen Brooke, said, “We were so surprised when Patrick walked into the Cathedral at the end of the preparations on Monday. We gave him a quick tour of the work completed so far and he was impressed by the scale of the event and the skill of the designers who have been working tirelessly for many months to bring this festival to life.”
