IT’S the final Friday of the Worcester Festival ( But don’t be glum there is still much for you to do in the next four days – more than 160 events in fact!

Today is the first day of a beautiful exhibition in Worcester Cathedral entitled, Confetti. The exhibition of animal and wildlife artist Jess Pritchard's work features a range of hand-drawn large scale petals ranging from 60x60cm to 100x100cm in size.

This series has been over a year in the making and is to celebrate how large and significant nature has become to us through the pandemic as well as highlight the detail and beauty that can be found in a single petal.

If you would like to look like a beautiful flower Funky Faces Face Painters are in Crowngate Shopping Centre today and tomorrow to make your dreams, come true.

There is no age limit on fun in the Festival so adults are welcome to have their faces painted too!
