Suffolk Show 2012: The Final Countdown

This year’s Suffolk Show is tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday and tickets are selling fast for the County’s biggest two day event.

Despite recent heavy rainfall, the show unlike some other show’s will go on. Trinity Park has good drainage and therefore visitors should not be bogged down in mud.

Show organisers have announced several new elements for this year’s Show – guaranteeing enjoyment for visitors of any age, regardless of the weather.

For the first time, Show visitors will be entertained by the Living Statue Company, as well as by a wealth of other street theatre which will also include the enormously popular Titan the Robot.

The Military Zone has been increased in size this year and will feature the Royal Air Forces Association and Royal Auxiliary Air Force (RAuxAF) based at RAF Honington. In this area, visitors will be able to sit in aircraft cockpits and try on survival equipment including flying suits and helmets. There will also be a weapon display and a gun pit, alongside a 7.5ft mobile climbing tower and the chance to experience combat training in an interactive simulator. The Military Zone, which will include the Army Air Corps based at Wattisham will be taking centre stage in the Zone and there will also be a naval presence.
