Tulip growers in West Norfolk will once again be opening up their fields to help raise funds for a hospice.

Tulips for Tapping gives people the rare chance to celebrate the start of spring by visiting and walking through the breathtaking tulip fields.

The tulip fields are located just off the A148, close to the Sandringham Estate. The exact location will be given to ticket holders at the time of purchase.

Nicola Ellis, chief executive at The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House, said: “We are delighted to be opening the tulip fields for another incredible event.

“Each year we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the visitors, who come from near and far, to see the splendid sight of the tulips in full bloom.

“As a charity providing free end-of-life care to people in West Norfolk we are reliant on the income that events such as this generate. With our annual care services running in excess of £3.25million a year, we welcome the opportunity to invite people to share in such a wonderful experience whilst contributing to such a great cause.

“I would especially like to thank the team at Norfolk Tulips, Michael Rae and Roydon Hall Farms for making this event happen once again in 2024.”

Tickets will be for 45-minute slots, with first entry at 10am and last entry at 3.30pm. Adult admission is £7.50 each, children aged five to 17 are £5 each, and under 5s are free.

Three late evening times are available this year, where the last entry will be at 7pm on Friday, April 19, Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26.

This year there will be a parking charge of £2 per car which will cover the cost incurred by The Norfolk Hospice to rent the land for the car park.

Wheelchairs and buggies are welcome on the field. However, dogs, drones and smoking are strictly forbidden.

To ensure entry, tickets must be pre-booked in advance online.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, April 8 at 10am. There will be traders selling food and refreshments, toilet facilities, parking and a stall selling merchandise at the event.

The team has warned that the terrain will be uneven and can be muddy or dusty, and wearing appropriate footwear is advised.
