Ipswich’s Trinity Park will be transformed into a winter wonderland this weekend as the Suffolk Winter Fair comes to town.

Seasonal shopping aside, it promises to be a few festive fun days out.

Visitors can take a steam train or carriage ride to meet Father Christmas, say hello the reindeers and then watch Cosmo the Clown and friends’ show. Seven-ball juggler Lucas Hardy will amaze; learn how he does and more in one of the circus workshops.

You can also meet rural craftspeople, learn more about how they make their products and pick up a unique gift.

Other attractions include Tim and Tina’s falconry display, festive sheep racing, Gemma’s petting farm, make a personalised clay pot to give away as a Christmas present or pop around the corner and watch an old fashioned puppet animal circus.

You may also want to watch:

Jester Devilstick Pete will be giving a fire-eating display, the Harveys Shirehorses will be on show along with the show’s donkey’s.

Visitors can take a break from shopping to decorate gingerbread men, watch some of the cookery demonstrations throughout the day, learn to make a wreath for your front door or take part in some workshops.
