A spectacular carnival tribute to the forthcoming Rio games is to go on display at Harrogate Spring Flower Show.
It's believed to be the first ever carnival costume made from fresh flowers and foliage - and visitors to the show will be able to see it from tomorrow until April 24th.
The 12ft by 12ft work of art will form part of Britain's biggest exhibition of floristry and flower arranging. It's been created by international carnival designer Hughbon Condor and award-winning florist Helen James, with the support of funding from Arts Council.
The costume contains more than 30 metres of aluminium tubing and fibreglass rods, and over 1,400 fresh flowers and pieces of plant material, taking a staggering 155 hours to complete.
Up to 60,000 visitors are expected at the flower show, which will also feature large scale exhibits from floristry colleges across the region, who will be celebrating the forthcoming games in Brazil with the theme Carnival Rio Style.
Members of the Bronte Society celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charlotte Bronte on the Terrace of the House of Commons.
The gathering marked the start of a five-year programme to highlight the bicentenaries of the births of each of the Bronte siblings.
Charlotte’s is the first birth to be celebrated this Thursday, with Branwell to follow in 2017, Emily in 2018 and Anne in 2020.
Celebrations to mark Charlotte’s birthday will take place around the world on April 21st. The primary focus will be on Haworth itself which will host a full day of community-led activities.
We at the Bronte Society have been planning these events for a number of years now. We are very excited to see the Bronte 200 launch on Thursday 21st April with a day of activities in Haworth, followed by a commemorative service in Westminster the following day. It was wonderful to come to the Houses of Parliament and help start the celebrations.
