Deakin & Francis are proud sponsors of Birmingham Cathedral’s 300th Anniversary display at the Royal Horticultural Societies Chelsea Flower Show!
The display which has won Gold and Best in Pavilion at the show, is inspired by the 300th anniversary of the consecration of Birmingham Cathedral. The anniversary is being celebrated by a series of special events, including the stunning display at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, which takes place from Tuesday 19th – Saturday 23rd May.
Deakin & Francis are one of the sponsors to have their personalised stained glass panel on display around the Birmingham Cathedral display. Other local sponsors include Jaguar and the Landscape Practice Group.
James Deakin says ‘when Birmingham Cathedral invited us to be part of their 300th Anniversary celebrations, we were delighted to accept. As England’s oldest family jewellers, we value history and heritage and like to support the local community where we can.’
The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry had a private tour of the show on Monday and other famous guests so far have included Kelly Hoppen, Mary Berry and Zara Phillips MBE.
The display was also featured on the BBC’S coverage of the show, in the 29th minute of Episode 1, now available on IPlayer.
