Bramhall Methodist Church are hosting ‘A Stillness Heard Around the World’ to commemorate the signing of The Armistice.
Taking place from November 8th to 11th, ‘A Stillness Heard Around the World’ will feature flower arrangers from all over the North of England and Wales who will be using their creative skills to represent in flowers the poetry of eleven war poets throughout the church centre.
The front of the church will have a wave of over 1700 poppies. Inside a second wave of knitted and crocheted poppies will cascade down from the cross at the front of church.
Visitors will have the opportunity to walk round The Cenotaph, The Menin Gate, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a trench.
The Christmas Eve football match, Thankful Villages, Mata Hari, Edith Cavell and The suffragettes will also be represented in flowers.
Light lunches and refreshments will be available from 11am to 4pm.
On Friday evening the folk group ‘Harp and a Monkey’ will be performing in the church. Tickets will be available from the church or the church website. Booking essential.
This promises to be an unforgettable experience. No need to book for the Festival, bring your friends and pay on the door.
