The Sandringham Flower Show has been cancelled for the second year running.

The popular event, which is usually attended by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, was scheduled for Wednesday, July 28.

Organisers said the event, which usually attracts thousands, cannot go ahead due to the ongoing pandemic.

In a statement today, show chairman David Reeve, said: “While we are all desperately sad not to be returning to the showground this year as we had hoped to do, we do not feel that we can mount the show while still protecting the welfare of our visitors, exhibitors, competitors and volunteers.

“We hope that the easing of the COVID-19 pandemic over the course of 2021 will allow us to welcome everybody back in July 2022.”
