Televisions will be set up around the Suffolk Show this year, playing a key role in helping visitors to find the right location and learn more about what’s going on.

Suffolk-based electrical appliances retail chain Hughes Electrical is providing the TVs, as well as a prize for the show's Treasure Trail.

Show director Bee Kemball explained that the TVs would be at five locations on the showground forming the show's Treasure Trail, each covering a different aspect of what happens in the county: Farming Life, Technology, The Emergency Services, Pig Farming and West Suffolk College.

"There will be information on the TVs explaining more about each of these running on a loop which will also contain a clue to help people answer a question to win the 'Treasure'," she said. "This can be done manually or digitally via the Show App, with winners being drawn at random to win a number of prizes, including a £500 iPad from Hughes.

"We hope in particular it will be of interest to younger people and give them a great experience on their visit to the show."

Ashley Shorey-Mills from Hughes said: "As an Ipswich man I know the Suffolk Show is such a major event for the county and one everybody looks forward to. We have been working closely with the show's team to understand their requirements and as a result are delighted to be installing televisions around the showground as well as providing a prize for the Treasure Trail.
