About NIGFAS

Welcome to the website of the Northern Ireland Group of Flower Arrangement Societies, 21st area of NAFAS.

Enjoy browsing through our site, as we hope to keep you informed, about what floral events are happening around the area.

We are affiliated to NAFAS, the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies, a registered charity. Currently the NIGFAS Area has 21 clubs with a membership of 1000. We are proud to have many members involved at National Level as Judges,Demonstrators, Speakers and Teachers.

Our aim is to encourage all in the art of flower arranging, through demonstrations, talks, classes, flower festivals and show work. Many of these activities take place in local flower clubs to which you would be made most welcome.

No experience is necessary to join a flower club. Go along to one, you might discover a new talent!

Please click on Flower Clubs to find one near you.
NIGFAS members have arranged flowers in Westminster Abbey, staged an exhibit for NAFAS at the Chelsea Flower Show, taken part in World Shows while also enjoying the many more local events like the Belfast Spring and Autumn Shows, hosting floral design photography shoots and raising money for charity through the many flower festivals clubs are involved in.
There are lots of exciting events coming up and we would love to have your support at as many of these as possible.
