Sandringham Flower Show

Cancelled 2021

The Committee and Trustees of the Sandringham Flower Show confirm with great sadness that the 2021 Show, scheduled for 28th July, will not now take place in view of the enormous uncertainty still surrounding all matters around the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Sandringham Flower Show Chairman, David Reeve, said,

“Whilst we are all desperately sad not to be returning to the Showground this year as we had hoped to do, we do not feel that we can mount the Show while still protecting the welfare of our visitors, exhibitors, competitors and volunteers. We hope that the easing of the Covid-19 pandemic over the course of 2021 will allow us to welcome everybody back in July 2022."

New play area

Improvement Works at Sandringham.

During 2020, the Sandringham Estate began the first stages of improvement works to offer better facilities for visitors and to maintain the surrounding landscape and environment.

The response to the improved areas has been overwhelmingly positive and now into 2021, we enter the second stage of improvements.

Investment back into the Country Park, to maintain our existing facilities has been generated from car parking charges, and at this stage works on a new Children’s Play Area began in November 2020.

The design of new structures for the Children’s Play Area takes inspiration from features around the Estate. Local distinctive Appleton Water Tower, is the inspiration for a new accessible 8m water play tower which will become a key feature. In addition a toddler specific play area, high level walkways, landscaping and new seating areas will be also added in this next phase.

New generation planting is currently underway around our Visitor Car Parks and welcome area with work on the footpaths in the arboretum scheduled for the coming weeks.

You may notice fencing in operation around certain areas this is to help protect the young planting from wildlife.

Please be advised with these works in progress and due to the current latest lockdown, the arboretum and play area at present remain closed.
