Plans in Hand for our 2021 Event
Plans are well in hand for our 2021 event at historic St John's Mill & Conference Centre. This unique venue is located at the geographical heart of the Island with free parking in its own dedicated car park nearby, accessed from the Poortown Road. There's full accessibility with a disabled lift/toilets and two disabled parking spaces at the entrance to St John's MIll with additional parking at Tynwald Mills.

As a result of current Covid-19 uncertainties, it was felt unrealistic to expect venues to commit to a traditional festival and, as it would be sad to see the event disappear from the Island's cultural calendar, we've decided to take a different approach for 2021.
We're pleased to announce that our 2021 festival will be a one venue event held at St John's Mill & Conference Centre from Saturday 3rd-Monday 5th July.
As well as keeping the ethos of the Flower Festival alive, it will be a great opportunity to be thankful that we're still alive and well, and able to celebrate the beauty of flowers.
