Organisers of the annual Whitsun Fayre, in Bury St Edmunds, are predicting fine weather for the two-day event with visitors able to enjoy flowers, farm animals and lots of fun in the sun.
The free event, which is organised by the town centre business improvement group Our Bury St Edmunds,initially begun as a flower and plant market but now offers a range of attractions with something for all the family and new for this year a crafts and artisan food market on Angel Hill.
The urban beach will move to a new location outside Moyses Hall Museum and the Cornhill and Buttermarket will have a wide range of stalls and entertainers.
Mark Cordell, Chief Executive of Our Bury St Edmunds, said: “Every year we try to make the Whitsun Fayre a little bit different with something new to enjoy over the two days. This year the market on Angel Hill will offer all sorts of unique crafts and treats.
“Among the highlights will be luxury handmade ice-cream, wooden and traditional toys, beautifully made Russian dolls and Suffolk-based Mr Bees beeswax cosmetics and honey-flavoured beers.

“The weather is forecast to be warm and sunny over the two days and could reach temperatures of around 25 degrees, which is the high 70s, so I’m sure our beach will be as popular as ever. I’d remind visitors to bring their sunscreen but there will be plenty of places to buy an ice-cream or cool drink as they enjoy the Fayre.”
Admission is free and it runs from 10am to 4pm this Sunday, May 27, and Bank Holiday Monday, May 28.
