Suffolk Show organisers are promising an event which is ‘bigger and better than ever’ this year.
Highlights of the county showcase, which takes place on May 30 and 31, include The Bolddog Lings, who will be wowing crowds in the Grand Ring with their thrilling, high-energy motorbike stunt show.
It will also include lots of new attractions, unique shopping opportunities and free have-a-go activities.
The 100 day countdown to Suffolk Show 2018 began on Monday, February 19, as Suffolk Agricultural Association, the farmer-led charity which runs the event, held its annual general meeting.
Popular attractions include the Military Zone, Sports Village, and Flower and Garden Show, boutique fashion on Fifth Avenue, luxury homewares in the Lifestyle Pavilion, and artisan produce in the show’s newly-expanded Food Hall.

As well as all our usual show favourites and popular family attractions, this year we’re addressing some poignant themes and we hope visitors will enjoy looking back at the impact of World War One in Suffolk, as well as learning hands-on about the future of technology and farming.”
There will be more animal attractions at the show this year, with opportunities to meet the Suffolk Punch Horse and learn more about this rare breed.
