Floral artist Frederic van Pamel once again creates atmospheric floral splendor in Dam during the Christmas and New Year period. Construction of the gallery on the site of the former hospital is in full swing.
The exhibition, entitled “Winterosphere in Damme”, is open to the public from December 23 to January 9. Frederiek Van Pamel provides exquisite décor to seven rooms in the historic St. John’s Hospital and seven rooms, former retirement homes, in the adjacent Margherita Wing. There will also be a kind of cave and a forest with beautiful red Christmas balls on the trees,” Van Pamel already reveals. The prep time is shorter than expected this year, but thanks to my amazing team and enthusiastic group of volunteers, we’re trying something unique again. Some previously unused spaces provide fresh ideas.” Tickets are limited Mayor Joachim Keynes (CD, Video +) adds: “Flowers delight people and that is why we are looking forward to it.
