ONCE Upon A Time was the theme for this year's Great Malvern Floral Festival, and town businesses rose to the challenge with their accustomed creativity.

The first prize went to the Lyttelton House Gallery on Priory Steps, off Abbey Road, with an enchanting display based on Alice in Wonderland.

Gallery owner Andrew Morgan said, “We’re bowled over to have won. It was a real team effort and we’re delighted to have been part of such a great competition.”

The displays will remain on show throughout the weekend, with many traders opening specially on Sunday to show off their creations. A leaflet with a map is available from the TIC, Church Street, and local shops. You can also vote for your favourites at floralfestival.moonfruit.com.
