Horncliffe ready to stage 60th bulb show
The 60th staging of Horncliffe Spring Bulb Show takes place on Saturday, February 9.
To celebrate the show’s anniversary, all exhibits can be entered free of charge and the committee have doubled the prize money for this year only – a small repayment to all those who have faithfully supported the show in past years.
Some exhibitors have struggled with their bulbs this year because of mostly mild weather and some bulbs are flowering early so the recent cold snap is timely.
The flowering bulbs can be placed in an outside greenhouse to preserve the flowers in a cold temperature.
Doors open to the public at 3pm. Trophies will be presented at 4.30pm by Sarah Jones, headteacher of Norham St Ceolwulf’s First School.
