Aged 66 in 1953 Spry was commissioned to arrange the flowers at Westminster Abbey for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, and this started a new style of floral arrangement. Whilst art historian Jean Stokes talks through Spry’s work, Sue May will be creating a typical Spry flower display.
Looks like it should be a great afternoon. There are still a limited number of tickets available priced at £35 including afternoon tea. For tickets contact www.artfund.org/northumberland. I just need to choose my hat now!
