Felbrigg Flower Festival 2016

‘A Celebration of Shakespeare’

 

On the font is a depiction of ‘The Winter’s Tale’, a story of jealousy in which the king believes his wife to be dead after unjustly accusing her of having an affair.  Their baby daughter is taken by Antigonus to a faraway place and abandoned. She is found, brought up by a shepherd and is later returned to her father who is taken to see a statue of his queen whom he has pardoned after learning from the oracle that she is innocent. He kisses the statue which ‘comes alive’ and the couple are reunited.
