THE “Flying Gunners” will join Andalusian stallions as the main attractions at this year’s South Suffolk Show.

Now in its 122nd year, the one-day show is expected to attract thousands of visits to the Ampton racecourse site near Bury St Edmunds on May 9.

There will be a range of attractions including cattle, sheep and horse classes, a craft marquee, food hall, trade stands, a countryside ring, vintage farm machinery displays and a funfair.

This year’s headline acts will include the “Flying Gunners”, the Royal Artillery Motor Cycle Display Team and the horsemanship demonstration team the “Stallions of Substance”, who ride Andalusian horses.

There will also be up to 90 classic cars on display run by the West Suffolk Motor Club and the Eastern Counties Motor Club.
