Chagford, on the north-east edge of Dartmoor, has always been a loyal and royalist town and this will be demonstrated in June, with a four day Flower Festival in the parish church of St Michael the Archangel, to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Open 10.00 am – 5.30 pm daily from June 2nd – 5th, there will be floral displays depicting events and interests of Her Majesty’s throughout her long reign.
This is very much a real community effort, with people of all ages and across the whole town involved.
Chagford has an eclectic and interesting range of shops for visitors to enjoy and no fewer than fifteen places where you can buy food – ranging from snacks to full meals, organic whole foods to freshly baked treats.
We anticipate that people will visit Chagford from far and wide as we open the town, and all it has to offer, to visitors for this special event.
At its heart, is the ancient, beautiful and historic church and funds raised from the (free to enter) Flower Festival will go towards its upkeep.
In the, almost, 800 years since its dedication, Chagford church has seen 33 monarchs, but not one who has achieved a Platinum Jubilee before!
We are also delighted to welcome the ‘Ukuladies – Plus One’ for a concert; “A Celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee” at 6.30 pm on Saturday June 4th. Entrance is free with a retiring collection for breastcancernow.org
