Broke FMX Trick Riders

This year we are pleased to be welcoming Broke FMX to the main ring with their spectacular freestyle motocross display and trick show.  Titan the Robot will also be touring the showground giving you a chance to get up close to this legendary attraction. 

Other ringside entertainment includes The Sheep Show, Little Nippers Terrier Racing, Vintage Tractors, Young Farmers Tug-o-War,  The Dog & Duck Show,  Dog Agility by TAG where your dog can also take part and the popular Hound parade.

The Education team are focusing on cows this year so come along and try your hand at milking a cow.  Our local schools have also been celebrating The Suffolk Countryside in art.

The Cookery Demonstration area will be back with mouth-watering food prepared and cooked by local chefs, led by Mark David of The Cooking Experience, Hadleigh.

Over 160 trade stands will be showcasing their businesses including 42 local producers in the Food Hall and local caterers  offering  a wide range of tasty food and snacks to suit all the family. The Rural Craft and Art Marquees will, as usual, be filled with a spectacle of colour and talented craftsmen whilst the Flower Show is marking the end of WW1 with a focus on “Nostalgia and Memories”.  

Livestock plays an important part in our show and with over 150 classes of cattle, sheep, goats and horses it is easy to get up close to these wonderful animals whilst they are judged.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 179th Show


Gates open at 8.00am.  Parking is free.
