A TULIP festival is coming to Morton Hall Gardens next month to raise money for costume-making at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Morton Hall Gardens will welcome visitors to its annual Tulip Festival, which takes place from Saturday April 30 to Monday May 2.

More than 100 tulip varieties can be admired in borders, pots and three cut flower marquees, showcasing the queen of the spring flowers.

Original costumes from the RSC will also be on display to demonstrate the skills of the costume team.

Bloms Bulbs, winner of 68 Chelsea Gold medals, supply the bulbs and will be on site with expert advice.

The event takes place from 10am to 5pm, with last entry at 3.30pm.

Tickets are £10 per person (under 12s free) and support costume-making at the RSC. 

All tickets are booked in time slots and must be booked in advance at https://www.rsc.org.uk/morton-hall
