Today as we mark Shrove Tuesday and the last day before Lent, we have dug into our archives of pancake day photos.

Here we share a selection from the 1970s, 80s, 90s and the 00s, showing crepes pilled high with cream, flippers running along the street in Mendlesham and children whisking up batter.

Are you in any of our photos? Share your memories below.

If you are making pancakes today, don’t forget to share your photos by adding #Suffolk to your tweets and instagram posts. Will you be adding banana and chocolate, lemon and sugar or do you prefer cheese and ham, French style.

Our photographers will be out covering pancake races again today, so check back later for photos and video.

Theatre in the Forest returns to Jimmy’s Farm as Shakespeare meets the wild west (with a dash of Richard Curtis) in Red Rose Chain’s As You Like It.

Katherine Jenkins is one of the few artists who could look perfectly picturesque gliding towards the Waterfront Stage at Latitude Festival.

Festival goers to Latitude put their best fashion foot forward at the Suffolk festival.

The melodic guitar riffs blared out with a bouncing success as Two Door Cinema Club took to the Obelisk stage on Saturday afternoon.

American comic Reginald D Hunter was at his offensive best despite having to perform his set from a wheelchair after breaking a leg.

With his charming good looks and energy filled set, it’s hardly surprising the comedy tent was filled with enough young girls to rival a One Direction concert.

It’s hard to believe this wry and witty comedian started out as a corporate lawyer, although then again it’s not.

Lucy Rose, Skott and Joel Dommett were among the acts to strut their stuff on Saturday afternoon at Henham Park as Latitude Festival continued.
