It's a real flag day for Lacock Abbey
LACOCK Abbey’s South Lawn is going to be taken over by a sea of colour when 90 6ft batik flags go on display on Saturday, September 8.
The banners, created by women living in villages and army bases around Salisbury Plain, will remain on display until Sunday, September 16 as part of a project called Anything But Plain, Darling.
Organiser, Alex Grant from Salisbury based charity Circular Arts, said: “This has been a wonderful opportunity for women from the forces community to come together with those from the rural area and take part in a high profile arts event.”
The charity, which has previously displayed their flags in front of Salisbury Cathedral and at Mottosfont Abbey in Hampshire, is expecting a warm welcome of Lacock Abbey.
Rachael Holtom, visitor experience officer, at Lacock Abbey, said: “The flags will light up the front of the Abbey and provide a marvellous opportunity for interaction, as you wonder in and around the flags and admire the artwork.”
The first day of the display, on September 8, coincides with the abbey participating in a Heritage Open Day offering free admission to some properties at the attraction.
