Staying Covid-19 Secure in 2021

IMPORTANT – You must not visit us if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been instructed to self isolate.

As an outdoor event the risks of visiting us are very low. We would recommend that you bring your own hand sanitiser along with you and use it regularly. There is no running water in The Sunflower Field.

Please respect that some people may still be cautious of groups and crowds so please be nice and give people plenty of space. Please be especially careful and considerate in queues and busy areas. We have plenty of room so please make space! Thank you.

The Confetti Flower Field – usually open in late June / early July each summer.

The Sunflower Field – usually open in August.

Growing flowers is hugely dependant on the weather and climate! Consequently, each year the precise timing of when the flowers will be in full bloom will change. We do our best to anticipate when the flowers will be at their best and tailor our open days accordingly. Therefore, it is not always possible to give much advanced notice as to when we will be open for visitors.

Please note that we only open for a few days when the flowers are in full bloom. This is because the flowers only bloom for a short time – you cannot visit us out of season simply because there are no flowers!

We are very happy for people to take photos for non-commercial purposes. Whether you want some lovely family photos or you enjoy playing around at close up macro work on the flowers… Most importantly – you do not need to purchase an additional photography pass if your pictures are for your own personal use.

Commercial Photography

Anyone who would like to use our Flower Fields for commercial purposes must register with us and purchase a Location Pass for each day you wish to use the field. This includes, for example: shoots with clients (e.g. family photoshoots or engagement pictures), portfolio work, photography you will use to promote yourself, your skills and services online, on your business social media or on your professional blog.

If you would like to use the fields for larger projects and shoots you need to give us a call to discuss your plans and requirements. This includes, for instance: a product or fashion shoot, classes/courses, television/movie filming, or other media projects. Any project that has the potential to disrupt the usual atmosphere of the flower field or impact upon the experience of our visitors will need to be booked as a Private Hire. Access outside of our opening dates and times is strictly by prior arrangement and subject to availability. Please email nancy@confettidirect.co.uk to register your interest.

In short – any and all photography used to promote you and/or your business is considered commercial and a Location Pass/Private Hire is required.

Private Hire

The Confetti Flower Field 2021 – THE CONFETTI FIELD IS NOW CLOSED FOR 2021. 

The Sunflower Field 2021 – THE SUNFLOWER FIELD IS NOW CLOSED FOR 2021.

Cost: dependant on the size and scope of your plans.

Lifestyle, Fashion, Dance & Product Shoots are not allowed during the public open days. There is only a small window of opportunity to use the flower field around these dates and therefore access is strictly by prior arrangement and subject to availability. Please email nancy@confettidirect.co.uk with an outline of your project and we will discuss availability and costings.

If you are interested in running classes/courses in the flower field, again, please get in touch with an outline of your wishes and we can discuss the possibilities: nancy@confettidirect.co.uk

Media/television/filming projects – please remember that flowers only bloom for a very short period of time, and therefore we sadly cannot accommodate requests out of season! Please contact Nancy to talk through your ideas.

Helpful information to assist Professional Photographers planning Photo Shoots:

The entry slots at 10am, 11am and 2pm on the weekends are usually our busiest times. Consequently, please keep this in mind when making plans with your clients. We do not recommend that you start your bookings at 10am as it will take time for you and your clients to get in and meet up.

We recommend that you ask your clients to book their admission tickets BEFORE you buy your Pass. Therefore, if a particular entry slot has sold out, you can make alternative arrangements. To make this easier for you, a Photography Location Pass allows you entry to the field ALL DAY – between 10am & 5pm.

A Photographer’s Location Pass gives you, the photographer (1 person), access to the field during opening hours on your chosen date/dates as printed on the purchased pass/passes. If you work as a photography team, each photographer/assistant needs to buy their own pass.

We are open to the public from 10am – 5pm. There is NO ACCESS outside of these times.

There is NO ACCESS to any surrounding fields.

SUNFLOWERS 2021 –

Please note that there is a 250m walk from the carpark to the sunflower field.

There will not be a café in the sunflower field this summer.

There is a dedicated Photographer’s Meeting Point inside the field – this is the best place for you to arrange to meet with your clients. In The Sunflower Field 2021 it will be the large big top tent with blue flags, standing on its own in the grass area to the left of the sunflowers.

Please remember:

Passes are transferable but not refundable. If you wish to change the date on your pass, please call us on 01386 555045 with at least 24h notice.

This is an outdoor event in the British summertime – please discuss this with your clients and prepare accordingly. We cannot guarantee the sunshine! If it is just a little light rain we will generally be open as usual, so we would encourage you and your clients to wear wellies and bring colourful umbrellas for an equally fab photo opportunity! However, if you do want to transfer your pass to an alternative day, you must telephone us at least 24h beforehand to re-book your pass/es.

If the weather conditions mean that we must close the field on the day you are booked to visit, we will call you at the earliest opportunity to let you know and you will receive a refund for any pass valid on that day.
