A popular event in the grounds of a National Trust property in west Suffolk which was postponed due to bad weather has now been rearranged for later in the month.
Ickworth House, near Bury St Edmunds, made the decision to cancel its annual Battle of Waterloo event on April 7/8 due to the “unprecedented bad weather” creating poor ground conditions on the estate.
The event, which draws in thousands of visitors every year, sees the 95th Rifles and other regiments take over the grounds with a reenactment of the famous battle alongside a host of family activities.
The event will now be held on Saturday, April 28, and Sunday, April 29.
Tim Watson, general manager at Ickworth, said: “We have made the decision to move the event from April 7/8 to the April 28/29 to ensure as many visitors as possible can enjoy the event.

“Ickworth is listed parkland, and the National Trust must conserve and protect the land to ensure its future. We hope to see you on the battlefield soon.”
