‘All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Creatures Great and Small’ is the theme for this year’s Colkirk Arts festival.
Last year’s festival of angels-themed event at St Mary’s Church, near Fakenham, was a phenomenal success, with 600 visitors, and £1,003 was raised for church lighting.
This year the church will be decorated with butterflies and a 3ft-wide stainless steel spider will stand outside the porch.
Inside, displays will include a full-size beehive complete with knitted bees and flower garden, bonsai trees, a stainless steel swan, crocheted flower obelisk, and ‘Bottom of the garden’, a large wildlife display made from recycled metal objects.
Other attractions include Charlie the Guinea pig, butterfly wall-hanging, an illuminated underwater scene with tropical fish, over 100 paintings, pottery, and two large painted lions to guard the entrance to the church.
