The staple event in Suffolk’s calendar will be returning on the weekend of April 13 and 14, with families across the region invited to enjoy a host of activities – from hair-raising stunt shows to a rare stint of ‘alpaca agility’.

Set in the grounds of Framlingham College, the show promises “something for everybody”, with visitors encouraged to take their pick from a horse and falcon display by Game of Thrones star Jonathan Marshall, mouth-watering cookery demonstrations, an array of classic cars, and music from the Suffolk Youth Orchestra.

Britain’s Got Talent fans will also have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Dima and his Dancing Dogs, while thrill lovers can enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled display from the headlining Rocket Motorbike Stunt Team, a talented troupe of youngsters set to entertain with airborne stunts and a formation riding performance.

The show will be running alongside the Framlingham Festival of Dogs, with four-legged family members invited to enter one of the charity dog shows or ‘have a go’ dog agility sessions.

More than 150 food and drink producers and shopping stands will also be available to browse.
