A celebration of creativity is being held at an east Suffolk church this summer, showcasing the talents of local young people.

St Michael’s Church in Framlingham is organising A Celebration of Framlingham in Flowers Art and Music in July, with funds raised supporting the upkeep of the historic building.

Imogen Sheeran, the mother of the award-winning Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran, said the “heart” of the festival would be displays on the themes of “baptism”, “weddings” and “lives lived”, “all of which are central to what the church offers to the town”.

The celebration will begin on Friday, July 3 with a preview evening featuring music by local school students and an opportunity to view the exhibition of pupils’ artwork as well as the church’s flower arrangements.

A programme of concerts will also be held, offering music “to suit many tastes”.
