A village will be in full bloom this weekend with entertainment for all the family.

Thousands of people are set to flock to Thriplow for the 47th Daffodil Weekend which will showcase the best of the village between 11am and 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

The weekend, billed as a celebration of spring, will feature open gardens, sheep dog displays, Morris dancing and a vintage cars at locations dotted around the village.

Taste of Thriplow will offer a farmers’ market, a beer tent and a healthy dollop of musicians playing folk, jazz and everything in between.

There will also be heavy horses giving dray rides up and down the village throughout the day.

A spokesman for the event said: “Daffodil Weekend is a village community working together.

“Virtually everyone in the village does something towards the event, be it baking cakes, helping serve teas, working in the car park or picking up litter at the end of the day to bring off one of the best loved charity events in Cambridgeshire.”
