10th Anniversary of Flower Festival

The annual celebration of wildflowers and nature in the Yorkshire Dales will soon be underway, as the Flowers of the Dales Festival celebrates its tenth anniversary.

Coordinated by local charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) and supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, the Festival brings together 110 events taking place from March to October, led by passionate experts and enthusiasts across the region.

Now in its tenth year, more than 37,000 people have taken part so far in events that shine a light on the special habitats of the Yorkshire Dales; from traditionally-managed hay meadows and ancient woodlands, to heather-clad moors and limestone pavements.

The Festival aims to encourage people of all ages to discover the wonderful wildflowers of the Yorkshire Dales, and to gain an understanding of the careful management required to ensure that this special place can be enjoyed by wildlife and people in years to come.
