Tens of thousands of visitors are expected to descend on Bury St Edmunds today on what is expected to be the busiest day of the town’s Christmas Fayre.
The event, now in its eighteenth year, regularly attracts more than 100,000 visitors with a range of stalls, food and drink and entertainment to spread the Christmas spirit.
The fayre is open from 9am to 8pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
Where can I park?
A park and ride service has been set up from Saxham Business Park off the A14 (IP28 6RX), which is running until Sunday evening.
There is also the option to park in one of the council's car parks in Olding Road and West Suffolk College in Beetons Way.
