In celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Ancient Society of Florists, the oldest florists’ society still in existence in the world, a new festival, Bloom!, took place in historic York in 2018. The new four day festival, celebrating horticulture and flowers in York, marked the milestone with events and installations right across the city.

In response to Bloom! York Learning created flowers in a wide range of media including recycled to create a flower wall at Explore York Libraries.
