The festival – which will begin with a preview evening tonight (Thursday) and draws to a close on Sunday – is themed around books written by Roald Dahl in celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Thousands of flowers have been made into large floral displays by hundreds of members of flower clubs and guilds in Lincolnshire, all based on Dahl’s creations and including James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr Fox, Mr and Mrs Twit and The Witches.

Meanwhile, musicians will fill the space with music throughout the festival.

Tomorrow (Friday), from 10am to 6pm, there is open viewing with music live throughout the day, refreshments on the rectory lawn, and children’s activities. On Saturday there is viewing and music between 10am and 6pm and a craft market. The festival continues on Sunday at 11am following the 8am Eucharist and 9.30am Parish Eucharist with Sunday Club. There will be open viewing until 4pm with live music throughout the day, refreshments, children’s activities and a craft market. Admission is £5 for adults and children under 16 can visit for free.
