THEIR MAJESTIES THE KING AND QUEEN WILL VISIT SANDRINGHAM FLOWER SHOW

Wednesday 26th July 2023

The King and Queen will visit the 140th Sandringham Flower Show, meeting exhibitors and members of the public, Sandringham House, Norfolk.

Sandringham Flower Show takes place in Sandringham Park with Sandringham House and the Church of St Mary Magdalene as a backdrop. The one-day show attracts around 20,000 visitors each year.

Many of East Anglia’s leading nurseries and horticultural specialists exhibit at the show, and in addition it features display gardens by leading designers, around 200 trade stands (both horticultural and general), a number of charity stands, a craft marquee, main arena events, children’s entertainment and a police band.

The royal marquees host 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 amateurs’ marquee, local gardening and horticultural clubs enter a display competition, which is judged, while the horticultural trades marquee features displays by leading nurseries.

The profits from each show are donated to local charities and to date the Show Committee has given around £825,000 to good causes.
