A royal welcome at Sandringham Flower Show
Sandringham Flower Show returned for its 138th year on Wednesday 24th July, showcasing not only the best of horticulture but also an event brimming with family entertainment.
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were unperturbed by the sweltering weather and greeted well-wishers under the protection of a white parasol. They also chatted with local businesses such as Norfolk Lavender, Bramble Flowers and Peter Beales Roses.
Typically attracting around 20,000 visitors each year, the Sandringham Flower Show is a staple in the nursery and horticultural event calendar and are traditionally visited by a royal patron.
On display were numerous exhibits and marquees featuring local produce and homemade sweet treats with the beautiful floral arrangements underpinning the event. In the Royal Marquee competitions were held for fruit and vegetables, preserves and baking and flower arrangements.
Entertainment-wise there was the Guido Louis Equine Display, Paul Hannan Stunt Show and Red Devil’s Parachute Display to keep spectators enthralled.
There was a plethora of stalls for visitors to peruse to ensure that every taste was catered for and cemented the event as a grand day out for all of the family.
