A new era begins in Spalding this bank holiday weekend when hundreds of families are expected at the first-ever Springfields Festival and Tulipmania celebration.

Springfields Horticultural Society and Tulip Radio have joined forces to put on a packed programme of events this Saturday and Sunday, including the Tulipmania Procession round Springfields Festival Gardens at 2pm.

A competition to find the Tulipmania Prince and Princess is to be held at noon and the winners will have the honour of leading the procession.

The events will take place across three venues and highlights include the Watato Ugandan Children’s Choir, demonstrations by Bourne Karts and Diamondz Dance group, Spalding Marching Ambassadors, Meg McPartlin and Neon Youth Theatre.
