It’s been hard work, but the team behind this year’s Framlingham Country Show are ready to throw open the gates to visitors at Trinity Park this weekend.
The family spectacular, now in its ninth year, had to move 20 miles due to flooding brought on by the recent extreme wet weather which has already affected so many shows this year.
Paula Edmundson, the event’s director, said: “Every year we’re excited to run our flagship Framlingham Country Show as the first show of the year for Classic Festivals and Events.
“This year marks our ninth consecutive year, so despite the inclement weather, we were determined that the show must go on. We’ve been working hard to ensure the successful transfer from Framlingham College to nearby Trinity Park this year and we’re really pleased we can still offer our 100-plus exhibitors, attractions and entertainers, hot food vendors, Festival of Dogs and so many more, a great event.”
Highlights include last year’s Great British Bake Off winner Sophie Faldo, who’ll be giving cooking demonstrations and meeting fans.
