Sandringham Flower Show

Wednesday 26 July 2017
See website for times

Sandringham Flower Show is one of the most prestigious horticultural events in the East of England. Now in its 136th year, it is much more than just a Flower Show.

It is a unique event offering not only the best in horticulture but also an excellent day out, filled with family entertainment.

Set in the magnificent surroundings of Sandringham Park with Sandringham House and Sandringham Church as a backdrop, this one-day Show attracts around 20,000 visitors each year. From the beginning the Show has been privileged to enjoy Royal patronage and traditionally our Royal Patron attends the Show.

Many of the regionís leading nurseries and horticultural specialists exhibit. In addition to these displays the show features display gardens by leading designers, around 200 trade stands (both horticultural and general), a craft marquee, main arena events, childrenís entertainment and a military band.

The Royal marquees contain the competitions in vegetables, fruit, flowers and floral art, with the entries grown by local residents; there are also some open classes which anyone may enter. In the amateurís marquee, local gardening and horticultural clubs enter a judged display competition, whilst the Horticultural Trades marquee features displays by leading nurseries.

The Gardenersí Forum is the venue for gardening talks by top television gardeners Chris Beardshaw and Alan Mason, who are joined by Martyn Davey, Head of Horticulture & Design at Easton College, and radio gardener and allotment expert Terry Walton. Nick Hamilton from Barnsdale Gardens will also be present. The Gardenersí Forum culminates in a Gardenersí Questions event.

The profits from each show are donated to local charities and since 1977 the Show Committee have donated more than £500,000 to local charities.

In the month prior to the Show, Estate employees, pensioners and tenants have the opportunity to enter their gardens in two judged competitions. On Show day, the King George Vl Challenge Cup and the Queen Mother Challenge Cup are presented to the winners of these competitions. Further details of all the competitions may be obtained from the Secretary.
