The Spring Plant & Craft Fair returns to the Tuesday Market Place in King’s Lynn from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 11 May.
The popular event will once again feature a wide range of stalls, demonstrations and workshops that will appeal to both keen gardeners and families in search of a fun day out.
Children will be encouraged to plant poppy seeds and take part in creating a display to mark the centenary of Peace Day, which takes place on 19 July. The creation will be shown in July in King’s Lynn Library, next to Tower Gardens, which has recently been dedicated as a Centenary Garden by Fields in Trust .
This year’s Spring Plant & Craft Fair features:
- Plant/craft stalls
- Children’s activities
- Chainsaw carving demonstration
- Drop-in plant and tree surgery
- Allotment competition launch
- Cakes, chocolate and hot food stalls
- King’s Lynn Horticultural Society
- South Wootton in Bloom
- West Norfolk & King's Lynn Beekeepers' Association (with observation hive)
- Gaywood Valley Conservation Group
- RSPB, Norfolk Wildlife Trust and Salters Sanctuary
- Renewable energy and KLimate
Rob Wiseman, the event organiser at the borough council said “Our Spring Plant & Craft Fair has become the traditional start of our season of free family events; what could be better as the weather starts to improve than an event that inspires you to get out into the garden.”
The free activity and craft workshops are for all ages, but children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.
