Snowdrop Festival at Bagthorpe Hall
Fresh air and the first signs of spring epitomised by drifts of glorious snowdrops are a reminder of changing seasons and a promise of what’s to come.
What better way to shake off winter and celebrate the exciting gardening visiting year ahead than with the National Garden Scheme’s Snowdrop Festival.
These glorious white heralds of spring can be viewed in five National Garden Scheme gardens throughout Norfolk in February, including at Bagthorpe Hall, near Bircham Newton.
On Sunday, February 20, 11am-4pm, Bagthorpe Hall will once again be open for a delightful circular walk meandering through a stunning display of snowdrops naturally carpeting a woodland floor, and then returning through a walled garden.
Julia Stafford Allen, Norfolk county organiser said: "Following the restrictions of 2020 and 2021 we are looking forward to starting a new year, by welcoming back visitors to enjoy our earliest gardening showcase.
"Our snowdrop festival isn’t just for galanthophiles looking to spot a rarity, but welcomes everyone who wants to throw off the winter blues and spend time outdoors at what can be a gloomy time of year."
The Snowdrop festival runs between February 1 -28. Pre-booking is essential for some open gardens.
