The event is a prominent fixture in the area’s calendar, organised by the Grundisburgh Burgh & Culpho Horticultural Society, and in recent years was renamed the Village Show.

The 2005 spectacle included a number of family activities, from games and competitions, to rides on the ‘Zippy Dipper’ and a motorcycle show.

There was also a rather comical fancy dress competition which saw one young guests dress as a tin of Heinz tomato soup.
