Gundog Display

The Suffolk Gundog Club provide a remarkable display of skill and obedience with their retrievers and spaniels. Replicating a field trial within the grand ring, the dogs are put through their paces searching and retrieving on command. Constantly alert and with their eagerness to work, these dogs and their talented handlers never fail to impress.

Falconry

Thrilling displays of falconry always attract the crowds around the grand ring, as birds of prey soar high over the showground before returning to the glove with deft precision. Accompanied by enlightening and entertaining commentary, a selection of birds will showcase their magnificent wing spans as they dominate the sky at the show. PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE CURRENT HIGH NUMBER OF AVIAN INFLUENZA CASES IN EAST ANGLIA THERE WILL BE NO FALCONRY AT THE 2022 SHOW

Terrier Racing

The East Anglian Jack Russell & Lurcher Club delight the crowds with the antics of their Terrier Racing Team, and invite visitors into the ring to compete with their own dogs. Clear to see the joy on the faces of the dogs (and their owners) as they chase the sock, this is a firm favourite amongst dog lovers, and coupled with an equally popular event especially for the younger children called Race the Terrier!

Vintage Tractor Collection

Lines of lovingly restored Vintage Tractors and Stationary Machines cement the agricultural roots of the show, allowing for a moments reminiscing over times gone by. This year’s Tractor Judge, Mr Gary Woodrow of Norfolk, will be awarding the “Flack Perpetual Challenge Cup” for the best concours tractor, the “Clarke Perpetual Challenge Cup” for the best original working tractor (pre-1965), and the “Stacey and Partners Perpetual Challenge Salver” for best concours Stationary Engine. Those wishing to exhibit either a tractor or stationary engine, please click on the link below and return the completed application to the Secretary.
