Only hours left to take advantage of cheap tickets for the Suffolk Show
People planning to enjoy the Suffolk Show have just hours to buy discounted tickets online.
Online tickets can be booked until midnight – and printed out to bring to the gate.
Exhibits have been arriving at the Trinity Park showground today – the most spectacular being an Apache helicopter from Wattisham Airbase which flew in during the morning. It will be the centrepiece of the armed forces’ stand at the Ipswich corner.
Already the show has had the largest sale of online tickets in its history, and with the weather forecast now looking promising for the show days, organisers are hoping this will persuade even more people to book online in the last few hours.
Adults and young people aged 15-18 can save £5 a head, senior citizens can save £4 a head, and car parking is £1 cheaper if you book online.

Show director Bill Baker said: “We know many people like to leave it to the last minute to see what the weather will be like on the day, but they will miss out on these special prices,” said.
“The weather forecast is looking kindly for us and we are all geared up for a fantastic couple of days packed with everything that we enjoy about Suffolk and truly celebrating our food and farming heritage. We have pulled in some great entertainment, created more than 101 activities for families to do for free as well as reorganised all our public catering to ensure taste buds and wallets are also happy.”

Visitors who usually use the Nacton gate will find a new widened Bucklesham entrance in its place with more entry lanes and a scenic woodland entrance.
In a move to give parents more peace of mind every child will be given an orange wristband at the gate or at any Archant stand, in a sponsorship by the publisher of the EADT and Ipswich Star, to write an adult’s mobile telephone number in case they get lost.
