This is the second occasion which has been found where the Society held a Tulip show outside of Wakefield, albeit close-by at Heath. Although neither  of the two reports shown state that it is a show by the Wakefield Florists Society, all the exhibitors were ‘the usual suspects’, (with the same classes), who then exhibited the following Monday at the Annual Show. The two reports are slightly different, suggesting different authors. One uses the term bizarres, the other bizards and one includes the result of the breeder classes but omits the names of the judges.

The venue at Heath is not known.
