The riverside event provided the perfect opportunity for people to celebrate Suffolk Day, with boat races, music, food and drink fit for the whole family.

Now in its 181st year, the regatta took place on Sunday, June 23 - stretching along the river from The Tide Mill to the Deben Yacht Club.

There were plenty of arts and crafts on offer for everyone

Doors opened at noon, followed shortly by a performance of Songs of Praise led by Churches Together on the Tea Hut Stage.

The regatta was formally opened by the town mayor at 12.30pm, and concluded with the traditional Duck Dive at 5.15pm on the Model Yacht Pond, organised by Woodbridge & District Lions Club.
