On Sunday the 22nd of September, this year's Chobham Flower Festival will begin with the Festival Eucharist in St Lawrence church. The service starts at 10am and will include a special guess preacher.

Over the weekend of Friday 27th through to Sunday 29th September St Lawrence church and the church hall will be filled with magnificent displays of flowers, created by members of the many Chobham Village clubs, societies, schools and local churches, as well as the St. Lawrence regular flower arrangers. Any funds raised over this weekend will go towards the church's needs, so please come and enjoy the flower arrangements.

During the weekend of the Flower Festival, there will be a Festival Cafe in the church hall. With live entertainment from Sounds Easy and the Chobham Morris Dancers on the Saturday.
