HOH Equine team will be performing in the Grand Ring at the 2024 South Suffolk Show with their highly skilled team of performance horses and riders, demonstrating poise and precision with an inspiring display of classical dressage, liberty, stunt and trick riding. Whilst JPL Shetland Pony Racing will provide a gutsy spectacle of speed!

And weather permitting, not only will a Battle of Britain Memorial Flypast be passing over the show ground, but the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team will be dropping in to the Grand Ring to salute the 2024 South Suffolk Show President!    

As always there will be plenty to see and do outside the grand ring including farriers in the forge, gun dogs working, terriers racing, farm machinery new and old, the Ferretworld Roadshow who will be looking for volunteers of all ages to race against their ferrets, and the infamous ‘Sheep Show’ with their dancing sheep!

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.


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 ONGOING RESTRICTIONS WITH REGARD TO AVIAN INFLUENZA THERE WILL BE NO FALCONRY AT THE 2024 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.
