August 2018 - Europe's leading floral festival,
direct from Inverness with JerseyTravel.com
The Jersey Battle of Flowers is the island’s must-see annual festival. The festival has been entertaining the crowds from 1902 and since then floats have been intricately decorated with thousands of vibrant flowers as they compete for the Prix D’Honneur. Every year a well-loved celebrity plays the role of Mr Battle and he joins Miss Battle, chosen from one of the island’s parishes.
In 2018, the parade takes place on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th August with floats, musicians, performers and dancers taking to the beautiful St. Aubin's Bay. As part of JerseyTravel.com’s exclusive package, you will depart from Inverness direct to Jersey on Saturday 4th for 7 nights meaning you have chance to enjoy the island at leisure before your floral adventure begins!
