We hope to see you in the flower field very soon! Thank you.

Visiting Our Farm

We are a working farm and the confetti flowers are rotated with all our other crops. This means that the flower field is in a new place each summer and consequently everything is a little bit different. That is to say, regardless of whether you are a new or a return visitor, please read the following information to help you enjoy your outing to the full!

Growing flowers can be unpredictable, therefore we suggest that you return to this page before you embark on your journey to see us, just in case of any changes.

Admission

  • The Confetti Flower Field is open to the public from 10am – 5pm every day from 21st – 30th June. There is no public access outside of these times.
  • Adult entry: £5.00
  • Child aged 6 – 16: £2.50
  • You can purchase admission on the gate – tickets are not sold in advance.
  • You will be directed on to our farm from Wick village and car parking is free.
  • Most importantly – please note that there is at least a 200m walk from the car park to the flowers. Unlike in previous years, you cannot see the flowers from the carpark. If you are unable to walk very far, we do not advise that you visit the field in 2019. All pathways are level, but they are bumpy fields and we advise that they are unsuitable for wheelchairs and walking frames. (Please see below for more details.)
  • Please do not bring your pets – registered disability assistance dogs are the only animals allowed in the Flower Field.
  • There is no smoking or vaping allowed in the flower field or on any of our surrounding land.

Please remember this is an outdoor event in a farm field: In hot weather it is very dry and dusty underfoot. On the other hand, on a rainy day it can be muddy. We recommend you wear appropriate footwear and clothing, including a hat and sunscreen on a sunny day. There is very little shade/cover in the field.

This is a pop-up 10-day event: We have portaloos available in the carpark and flower field, but there is no running water or electricity.

Groups and Coach Trips

Group visits are very welcome, but we regret we are unable to offer talks or tours. There is no need to book ahead with us unless you are coming in a minibus – please just give us a call to advise us when you would like to visit.

We are very sorry but we cannot accept coach trips. Due to the location of the field there is no parking available for full size coaches.

Media and Journalistic Enquiries:

Please call Nancy on 01386 555045 if you are interested in writing about or filming in our flower field in 2019. Please note that there is a very short window when the flowers are in bloom! SORRY – NOW FULLY BOOKED!

Commercial Photography:

Please visit our dedicated Professional Photographers page HERE. SORRY – NOW FULLY BOOKED!

Commercial classes, tutorials, workshops and tours:

Please call Nancy on 01386 555045 if you are interested in running a commercial venture in the flower field. All requests are subject to availability and if your proposals are approved, you will be required to purchase a Daytime Location Pass for group entry. SORRY – NOW FULLY BOOKED!

Commercial activities do not fall under our general admission terms and will require further discussion to understand your request. Please note: Access outside of our opening dates and times is strictly by prior arrangement and subject to availability. SORRY – NOW FULLY BOOKED!

Disabled Access

In 2019 the car park is situated 200m away from the flower field. As a result, unlike in previous years, you cannot see the flowers from the carpark. The pathway will be level, but it is across a farm field and we advise that it is unsuitable for wheelchairs and walking frames.

If you are only able to walk short distances, we are very sorry to say that we do not advise that you visit the field this summer. The Confetti Flower Field is a farm field and it is very bumpy and uneven underfoot. This can be challenging for those with limited mobility. Additionally, the soil is very soft, and it can either be very dusty or muddy.

However, a more intrepid visitor may still enjoy the view: There are grassed areas around the edge of the flowers and seating provided by the Confetti Café. A disabled toilet is provided. Wheelchair users are admitted free, but accompanying persons are charged at the normal rate. No wheelchairs are available for loan.

The Confetti Cafe

Our pop-up café will be back again in 2019!

Open daily when The Confetti Flower Field is open. 10.30am – 4.30pm.

The Confetti Café offers teas, coffee, soft drinks, locally made cakes and ice creams.

We regret there is no access to the Café without field admission.

The Local Area

Wick is situated a mile outside of Pershore, a delightful Georgian market town. Pershore offers the River Avon, parks and picnic spots, lots of great cafes, pubs and restaurants, and plenty of independent shops.

Other interesting tourist attractions include the medieval Pershore Abbey, Number 8 Arts Centre and Pershore Heritage Centre. We are lucky to be located in the Vale of Evesham, on the edge of The Cotswolds, and ten miles from the Malvern Hills, so if you’re travelling from further afield why not stay over and make a break of it?!

For accommodation in Pershore we recommend Woodlands 159 B&B or The Angel Hotel.
