Gallery: Family fun at country show

JOUSTING and sword-fighting were among the attractions at a medieval-themed event over the weekend.

The Robin Hood Game and Country Show took place at Trinity Park, Ipswich, with fun-filled events for all the family.

Friar Tuck and Maid Marian characters also made an appearance, interacting with the crowds and performing re-enactments of their adventures in Sherwood Forest.

A major feature of the show this year was the All About Dogs Zone, giving the region’s dog devotees the chance to see lurcher racing, dog agility and other exciting canine competitions.

The event saw hundreds of people chanting along to We Will Rock You as knights entered the stadium ahead of a jousting display.
