Suffolk Show Preview


Excitement is building with just days to go until gates open at the county’s greatest event, the Suffolk Show. Held at Trinity Park on Wednesday 31st May and Thursday 1st June, organisers are set for the most hotly-anticipated event in the county’s calendar with thousands of fun activities, experiences and attractions for the whole family to enjoy.

Not to be missed this year is the daring performances from Atkinson Action Horses, the equine stars of the BBC’s Poldark who will be wowing the crowds with breath-taking, high-energy stunts in the Grand Ring. The highly-trained horses and professional stunt riders will be performing twice on both the Wednesday and Thursday.

This year’s show also boasts a bigger and better Flower and Garden Show, with colourful and inspirational designs.

There will also be an impressive collection of vintage tractors, showcasing farming through the years, traditional fairground rides, and plenty of free have-a-go activities for all ages in the Suffolk Skills Zone, Sports Village and Military Zone.

Show Director, Bee Kemball, said: “Over the last 12 months we have been meticulously planning and preparing for the Suffolk Show, so we are very excited that it’s now just days away. As it’s my first year as Show Director, I am especially looking forward to welcoming visitors from across the county and further afield as they join us for Suffolk’s biggest day out.”

Many animal attractions are also set to draw in the crowds this year, including international show jumping and traditional livestock competitions including Red Poll Cattle, Suffolk Sheep and Suffolk Punch Horses.

Tickets for this year’s Suffolk Show are available on the gate or you can save £5 per ticket by purchasing online in advance. Advanced tickets cost £22 while children aged under 15 will once again receive free entry.
