An annual show returns to Suffolk this weekend.

The Mid and West Suffolk Show takes place at Stonham Barns on Saturday and Sunday.

The show is being run by a new events team, comprised of events manager Gordon Milne and events assistant Lucy Brett.

It will see a number of attractions return to the showground at the retail village, including jousting performance stunt team The Knights of the Damned, The Lowestoft dog agility team and a flying display from the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary.

The Suffolk Land Rover Club will be present and there will also be a parade of 40 classic cars and motorcycles, along with a petting zoo for children, and donkey rides on the Saturday.

The event will also give visitors the chance to see the retail village’s new barn, which will be hosting a number of trade stalls.

There will also be live music and weather depending, a hot air balloon display.
