For the first time in 1993 it was decided to include Art Work as an extra dimension and attraction to the floral display at the St Neot Flower Festival.
Since that time the high standard and reputation of the art has become a feature of the festival with many visitors coming solely to see the Art Work. At this year’s Village Festival, it is hoped that you will be able to enjoy the wide variety of styles and media on so many diverse subjects for there is sure to be something to cater for all tastes displayed with the flowers in the beautiful setting of our Parish Church. All the Art work is for sale and can be taken away today and will serve as a reminder of your special day in St Neot.
Interested artists who wish to take part in this prestigious festival with the Exhibition and Sale of Art are requested to get in touch with Mrs Jill Thomas, Tremarkyn, Wenmouth Cross, St Neot, Liskeard PL14 6NN tel: 01579 320669 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

Alongside the more traditional floral displays found inside the Church based around the theme “The Rhythm of Life”, the village of St. Neot offers a wealth of unusual places in which creativity can blossom.
Take a stroll through the village and its community garden to stumble across our community's interpretation of 'Land Art'.
These will be formed using almost any medium from floral displays, textiles, naturally found objects to recycled items; all of which will be used creatively in a variety of spaces ~ sharing a message or simply being crazy!
We hope you will enjoy this new experience in St Neot's unique and inspirational village setting.
