A STOURBRIDGE church will kick off its 150th anniversary celebrations with a flower festival.

The flower team at Our Lady and All Saints Catholic Church have been busy preparing for the Celebration in Flowers event, which takes place on the same weekend as the Stourbridge Carnival.

Throughout the celebrations, a variety of floral displays will be displayed in the church - that was designed by the famous architect Edward Welby Pugin.

Visitors can visit the church, on New Road, between 11am and 4pm on July 4, from 11am to 3.30pm on July 5 and 12 noon to 3.30pm on July 6.

Refreshments will be available.

It's a beautiful church. It holds so many memories for our family's. Everyone in our family has been christened there, made our first holy communions there, been confirmed there, and many have been married there. My grandparents met at the parish centre, they married in the church, renewed their wedding vows about 4 years ago, and sadly last year, my nan's funeral was held there. It plays a massive part in Stourbridge, it's iconic, and hopefully it will stand tall and proud for at least another 150 years!
