A Suffolk market is to hold its first family fun Saturday at the weekend as part of a council initiative and visitors are being urged to support the event.

Brandon Market will host the event on September 1 and visitors can enjoy free giveaways, family-friendly activities, and extra stalls and music.

West Suffolk councils, made up of Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council, run a range of similar events at markets across the area.

As well as the event on September 1, fun Saturdays will also take place on October 6, November 3, and December 1.

There will be a mix of free family entertainment including puppet shows, live music and arts and crafts as well as a selection of craft and community stalls.

Anyone interested in taking part in any of these events or interested in becoming a market trader can contact Sharon Fairweather at sharon.fairweather@westsuffolk.gov.uk
