Swannington in Bloom

This event is resting for 2023
Sorry, but Swannington in Bloom isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event

 approx 10 gardens opened Swannington, near Norwich, Norfolk
Sunday 26th June 2022
10.00am to 5.00pm

Come and enjoy what could be Norfolk's biggest garden party. Gardens showcasing a huge variety of size and style will be open around this idyllic Norfolk village. Gardens open range from Swannington Manor with its three-hundred-year-old yew hedge, to The Old Rectory and its beautiful rose gardens, to the Woodland Wander reclaimed three years ago after decades of neglect.

Cream teas, homemade cakes and ice cream are available in various gardens. Pimm's Terrace at the Manor plus local beer from Panther Ale on the Common alongside barbecue by Swannington Farm to Fork, Bertie's Woodfired Pizzas, and cold drinks.

A 1959 vintage Bedford coach will be on hand to transport people between gardens thanks to Eastons, while car lovers will also enjoy displays of various classic cars at Swannington Common and Upgate Common.

Grade 1 Listed St. Margaret's Church will also be open, serving homemade teas and light refreshments.

Art and crafts from approximately 15 local artists and makers in the barn at Swannington Manor.

Dogs on leads welcome.

All proceeds go to Swannington Play Area and St. Margaret's Church.
