South Suffolk Show 2017


What’s new at ‘The South Suffolk’ on May 14th?


A revised Showground Layout allowing for more trade space, a dedicated outdoor area for those larger Food Hall exhibitors and more car parking space for our ever-increasing numbers of visitors.

Ring attractions this year will feature the The Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team – “The White Helmets” who are acknowledged as the oldest, best known and most accomplished motorcycle display team in the country, if not the world. Along with the N&J Heavy Horse Display Team featuring carriage driving and ridden displays of Heavy Horses. The Sheep  Show’ and Bryan Paterson’s Falconry and Wildlife Displays (with Meerkats) will also be there to educate and entertain you and back by popular demand are ‘The East Anglian Terrier Club’ and ‘The Suffolk Gundog Club’

In addition the show had a high number of entries in its various horse and pony classes and our cattle, sheep and pig classes were also extremely well supported. Over the years the show has produced a number of National Champions.

Throughout the showground we strive to entertain all members of the family with attractions including traditional fairground rides, an arts and craft tent, a new shopping marquee, a food hall, Vintage Farm Machinery display, displays of Poultry and Vintage Farm Machinery.

In 2011 the trustees expanded the showground by approximately 15 acres to 95 acres in total, allowing mainly for more parking which we feel is required for the increasing number of visitors that we have seen over the past few years. This extra space also allowed us to reconfigure the layout of the showground and to provide a dedicated horse area with improved ground conditions and spectator safety in mind; this has gone down extremely well our visitors and competitors.

Visit the “South Suffolk” and experience a great day out for all the family at what visitors describe

as “A lovely day at a proper old style country show with that special feel to it”.
