9am Flower Show

For a calm start to the day, head to the Flower Show as it opens for a chance to admire Suffolk's horticultural stars.

12pm Dog & Duck Show

That's right - dogs and ducks. Make your way to the Horse and Country Ring to watch sheepdogs herd the rather unusual alternative.

1.30pm Pig Racing

Hogging the stage from the other animals at the Horse and Country Ring, it should be known as the Olympigs. A group of racing pigs is sure to be a crowd favourite.

1.45pm Shetland Pony Grand National

They might be smaller - but this event certainly isn't smaller on the entertainment front. Make sure to get yourself to the Collins Grand Ring to watch.

2.15pm The Mascot Derby

A crowd favourite - watch as the county's favourite costumes try their best to make their way around the course without slipping at the East of England Co-op President's Ring.

4.15pm The Grand Parade

Marvel in some of Suffolk's finest horses, including the county's pride - the Suffolk Punch. This is sure to be one of the highlights of the day at The Collins Grand Ring.

5pm The Red Devils Army Parachute Display Team

Watch in awe as the world famous parachuting team bring their adrenaline-fuelled antics to The Collins Grand Ring.

6.30pm Evening band

What better way could there be to unwind after a day of sampling everything Suffolk has to offer? Head down to the Ringside Clubs and end the night in style.
