2012 Suffolk Show details announced

Organisers of this year’s Suffolk Show have announced an impressive line-up for 2012, which is sure to make this year one of the best events ever.

Now in it’s 181st year, The Suffolk Show, will this year take place on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th June in order to accommodate the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.

The official press launch conference was held at Trinity Park (Thursday 22nd March), and guests were treated to an entertainment showcase courtesy of Suffolk Sport, Suffolk New College beauty students and Suffolk 1940s Swing Dancers, “The Jitterbugs”.

Christopher Bushby from Suffolk Agricultural Association said: “The Suffolk Show in 2012 will once more be a true celebration of all that is great in Suffolk. Jubilee and Olympic year means the country is in celebratory mood and the Show will encompass that spirit.

“We have many new surprises in store for Show visitors, but old favourites will also be returning to make sure that this year is one of the biggest and best yet.

“Once again we’ve been overwhelmed at the generosity of our sponsors whose financial support has meant we’ve been able to welcome some new attractions to the show as well as make some improvements to how we do things.

“This year the ticketing system for the Show has undergone a significant change. A new e-ticketing system has been created so that guests can download their tickets and print them off at home. This is a much more efficient way of purchasing tickets and it also means that advance tickets can be bought right up until the eve of the show at the discounted price. Hopefully this will encourage more Show visitors.”

“We are also indebted to our volunteer stewards – over 300 stewards are giving their time for free to work over two days for the Suffolk Show. It is the stewards, along with many others, who ensure the Show runs smoothly and it would not be a success without them.”
