Hailed as the 'gold standard' of floral festivals, the biennial Festival of Flowers at Chichester Cathedral has already raised £1m over the last two decades and this years' three-day event is expected to attract more than 15,000 visitors.
With more than 80 arrangements on display - some as large as 20-feet long and 12-feet high - 550 volunteers and local school children have contributed to the festival which ends on Saturday.
Guests have been offered the chance to enjoy a market, live music, a sculpture exhibition by Philip Jackson (CVO) and to meet the growers of a newly-developed flower called 'Heaven Scent' which hasn't been seen before.
The BBC Presenter, and local man, Tim Wonnacott (Bargain Hunt, Antiques Roadshow) is the patron of this year's festival, which is following the theme of 'The Artist's Palette'.
The 2016 Festival of Flowers is raising "fund" vitals for a restoration of Chichester Cathedral, according to the Diocese of Chichester.
It reports more than 7,500 volunteer hours have been donated during the week of the Festival alone and this figure increases significantly when including the time devoted by flower arrangers to planning their arrangements.
Excess flowers can be bought throughout the Festival, culminating in a grand sell-off of all the flowers and accessories used in the arrangements on the Monday 6th June.
