The parish celebrates celebrates 50 years of Daffodil Weekend
Every year, up to 14,000 people visit Thriplow to experience the warm and friendly atmosphere of our Daffodil Weekend charity fundraising event, run entirely by volunteers.
Over two days, visitors walk the car-free village to look at the daffodil displays, visit the attractions and open gardens, and potter around the stalls. Refreshments are served in the tea rooms with homemade cakes and sandwiches, or delicious hot street food can be eaten in The Taste of Thriplow while listening to live music.
For months beforehand and over the weekend itself, virtually everyone in the village (and many neighbouring villagers) volunteers to help organise the event – be it baking cakes, helping serve teas, working in the car park or picking up litter at the end of the day. Every year, the exceptional Thriplow and it's surrounding communities work hard to pull off one of the best loved charity events in Cambridgeshire.
Over 350 volunteers!
It takes over 350 kind-hearted and very fabulous volunteers to put on a two-day Daffodil Weekend, with many people often working a number of shifts to cover the weekend.
