It may almost be June but in one part of the Suffolk Show there was a light sprinkling of the white stuff.

The St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese’s marquee is hosting a special “times and seasons” exhibition throughout the next two days.

More than 2,000 visitors are expected to call by and join in with a variety of activities centred around winter, spring, summer and autumn.

As part of the exhibition there is a snow machine, while Roman soldiers are on stand by to represent Easter.

EADT editor Terry Hunt was also on hand along with Bishop Nigel Stock, who discussed what seasons mean to different people along with pig farmer James Stamper and Arch Deacon of Suffolk Ian Morgan.

Bishop’s chaplain the Rev Mary Sokanovic said: “Where else would you find snow, Roman soldiers, a beach hut, a chat show, lost sheep, children’s activities and free refreshments?

“There is lots happening. Come on an artistic journey through times and seasons with us throughout the show’s two days.”

The section for winter includes a Christmas display of cribs and flurries of snow. For spring there are Roman soldiers in full costume with artefacts from the Bury St Edmunds Passion Play.

For summer the theme is Pentecost with areas based on wind, fire, water and oil, including a beach hut designed by children from Southwold, and even a boating lake where children and adults can race paper boats.

Autumn depicts the county harvest and there will be the opportunity to create a cathedral altar frontal.

The church’s marquee can be found at stand number 179 in Flower Show Avenue.
