ORGANISERS are counting down the days to the annual South Suffolk Show.

Now in its 125th year, it takes place on Sunday, May 12 at Ampton Racecourse, near Ingham.

This year’s event will feature many favourites including a craft marquee, food hall, trade stands; a display of vintage farm machinery, classic cars, funfair, and a dedicated Gardener’s Delight area.

Both the grand ring and the countryside ring will be packed with entertainment, with The Kangarooo Kid, from Australia’s Gold Coast on his first UK tour after a four-year break from his world-famous stunt show and promising to treat visitors to a set of new tricks and introduce his son. The two daredevils will perform stunts on quad bikes.

There will also be the Eagle Heights Falconry Display Team, the East Anglian Terrier Club and the Suffolk Gundog Club.

Animal lovers will be able to take in the livestock classes featuring cattle, sheep, pigs, donkeys and horses.

Chairman of the South Suffolk Agricultural Association Ltd, Jim Mann, said: “After a difficult year for agricultural shows last year, with the weather of 2012 causing a number of cancellations, we are hoping that the South Suffolk will kick off a more successful show season.”
