Come and help us celebrate our Rose Fair!

Spend a day in the Fens and visit one of the finest flower festivals in England, but there is also so much more to see and do in Wisbech, especially during Rose Fair.


If you would like to be this year's Rose Queen, please apply to the Wisbech Standard:

St Peter & St Pauls

The church is set within an acre of stunning, award winning gardens which have won a Green Flag award each year from 2008 to 2014 and again in 2016. Entry is free, but donations are appreciated.

Wednesday 4th to Saturday 7th July

The King's Church

The King's Church, Wisbech started in 1984 from a small gathering in a private house and has steadily grown to the gathering of lively Christians you meet today. The church has no 'building' but is made up of the people who attend it. We will be located next to the Queen Mary Centre, by Somers Road Car Park

Saturday 7th July - all day (TBC)

"Messy Church Taster"

Messy Church is an all-age service designed to be fun, interactive and friendly.  There will be, a bouncy castle, crafts and a puppet show that will happen a couple of times between the parades. This is a free event and should be a lot of fun.
