The Suffolk Show returns this year on Wednesday 30th May and Thursday 31st May at Trinity Park in Ipswich. As Suffolk’s largest two-day visitor experience, the Show is a unique celebration of everything that makes the county great and showcases the best of Suffolk’s food and drink and agricultural heritage, coupled with being a great day out for families.

Show organisers, the Suffolk Agricultural Association (SAA), a registered charity, have some exciting features in the pipeline for 2018 which will be part of an action-packed programme across the two-day event. Highlights include the Bolddog Lings who will be wowing crowds in the Grand Ring with their thrilling, high-energy motorbike stunt show, and popular attractions like the Military Zone, Sports Village, and Flower and Garden Show. The theme for this year is ‘Looking back, looking forward’ which will celebrate how agriculture has shaped the county and offer a glimpse into Suffolk’s farming future.

Show Director, Bee Kemball, said: “We look forward to welcoming visitors to the county’s biggest day out. There are so many things to see and do at the Show and each year we make sure that there’s something new and exciting for visitors to enjoy. As well as all our usual Show favourites and popular family attractions, this year we’re addressing some poignant themes and we hope visitors will enjoy looking back at the impact of World War One in Suffolk, as well as learning hands-on about the future of technology and farming”
