New this year, Bloom! is a celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Ancient Society of York Florists, the oldest existing florists’ society. The new four-day festival, from 5th to 8th July 2018, will be a riot of colour and flowers across the city. Expect flower-related displays, events, activities and promotions on every corner. For families, make sure you come along to the Little Vikings/York Theatre Royal free illustration workshop with Buttercrumble, local illustrators extraordinaire, on Saturday 7th July.
As part of the floral festivities, Little Vikings has teamed up with York Theatre Royal and local creative studio, Buttercrumble, to deliver an interactive illustration workshop for children on Saturday 7th July (10am to 4 pm). It’s free to join and promises to be great fun. You’re all invited to join the illustrators to create a floral mural that will remain on display during the summer months, so you can admire your artwork during the holidays. There’ll be hands-on, give-it-a-go workshops every hour and guests will take home an illustrated memento of the day. Blooming marvellous.
