Tulip fields tour coming back this month to King's Lynn
The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, and tulip grower Mark Eves, of Belmont Nurseries, have announced the return of Tulips for Tapping after a hugely successful 2021 event which raised more than £21,500 for the Hospice.
The 2022 event is due to take place from Thursday, April 21, to Monday May 2 (closed Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27).
The fields are in a different location this year just off the A148, close to the Knights Hill; the exact location will be revealed to ticket purchasers.
Last year, the sold out event attracted more than 6,000 visitors from all over the UK and it is expected to be even more popular this year.
All funds raised will benefit the Norfolk Hospice, in Hillington. They provide free end-of-life care and bereavement support to residents in West Norfolk.
Tickets must be pre-booked in advance and these will go on sale online on Tuesday at 10am.
Tickets will be for 45 minute slots with first entry at 10am and last entry at 3.15pm. Adult admission is £5 each, children (aged 5 to 17) are £3 each and under 5s are free.
The Norfolk Hospice have also collaborated with Miffy, the white rabbit character which appears in the popular picture books by Dutch illustrator, Dick Bruna. Miffy will be visiting the fields on Monday, May 2, and exclusive Miffy merchandise will be sold throughout the event.
There will be local traders selling food and refreshments, toilet facilities, ample parking and a stall selling merchandise at the fields.
Dogs and drones are strictly forbidden and wheelchair and pram use is discouraged due to uneven terrain.
The event’s sponsors are Stebbings Car Superstore and Timber Services Ltd. Supporters are Algeco, Rudd Marquees, T M Browne, Bawsey Country Park and Rural Broadband.
