Tulip Time - the annual Festival of Flowers at Spalding in Lincolnshire. The flower-growing industry uses a lot of coal for greenhouse heating. The Festival of Flowers features the East Midlands Queen of Coal, Pamela Hands, on the NCB float (slogan 'Everything flourishes on coal'), which is decorated with 23,000 tulips. The parade includes floats decorated with a total of 8 million tulips and there's also a brief appearance on screen of the Grimethorpe Colliery Band.
