The Sandringham Flower Show attracts more than 20,000 people every year with the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall returning as regular visitors.

Now in its 137th year, more than 200 stalls and flower displays will be arranged at this year’s event on Wednesday, July 25.

Chairman David Reeve said the show still retains the tradition of the old village fete, adding: “It’s what people love about it.
“It doesn’t change too dramatically and people know the way we do things.
“We are blessed with a lovely place and to see the Royal family support us year in and year out.
“We are lucky to have a band of supporters that enter the show. We hope for a nice day and for everybody to come along and have a really good day.”
