Fun and Learning at the Suffolk Show

The Suffolk Show returns to Trinity Park in Ipswich on Tuesday 31st May and Wednesday 1st June with hundreds of things for families to see and do. 

While school may be out for half-term, the Suffolk Show offers a fun learning experience with opportunities to discover new skills, learn about local careers, and experience all aspects of farming and county life. 

The Suffolk Skills Zone, sponsored by Suffolk New College, is a popular area for trying something new with free activities and workshops hosted by local students. Visitors can learn about forensic science with finger printing and soil sampling, or discover the creative arts with canvas painting, nail art or artistic hair styling.

Suffolk Wildlife Trust is back this year helping visitors discover how to make a wildflower plug, dip for underwater lifeforms, sweep for flying exoskeletons and build a space to help insects. There will be plenty of nature and wildlife activities for all ages.

In the Sports Village there are dozens of free sports to try such as archery, climbing wall, trampolining, cricket, slack-rope walking, rugby, lacrosse, cycling and the popular adrenaline-fuelled Air Drop where visitors can experience freefalling onto a giant airbag.

Another favourite educational area at the Suffolk Show is the Farm Discovery Zone which encourages children to meet the animals and learn about local farming. From brushing a horse, feeding a lamb or riding a mini tractor, this fun activity zone introduces the next generation to farming life.
