Those arriving at Trinity Park for Day Two of the Suffolk Show will be turned away from the site, owing to predicted high winds and obvious safety concerns.

Christopher Bushby, executive director, said:

“The reason we have decided to shut the show today is because we have been advised of a severe weather warning, with Force 9 winds predicted.

“This has not been an easy decision for us to reach, but it has been taken after careful consideration because we are not willing to take the risk with people’s lives.”

A process for reimbursing those who have purchased tickets in advance, will be put in place in the coming days.

Christopher added: “We will be offering refunds to those who have bought tickets in advance.

“Details will be made available on the Suffolk Show website Next Week” (www.suffolkshow.co.uk)
