The Suffolk Show

It’s Suffolk’s biggest two day pop-up family event. Let your children discover and explore everything about food, farming and the countryside and enjoy mesmerising ring displays and entertainment all in one place at Trinity Park. Hundreds of activities and animals are just waiting to be discovered, don’t miss the parrot show and helicopter aerobatic display! Discover why Suffolk is such a fantastic place to live, taste different foods, go shopping and grab some garden inspiration.

The Suffolk Show 2016

Held on the 1 June and 2 June, The Suffolk Show 2016 is sure to be the best one yet! Bring the entire family down for a day dedicated to country living, great food, amazing animals, and fascinating displays. Even the family dog is welcome at this event in Trinity Park!

The Attractions

Start your day by checking out one of the many parades and attractions. From show jumping to livestock showing, there is something for everyone. Children will love the mascot derby or taking a ride on one of the kid-size tractors. Spend some time feeding and petting the cows before heading over to meet Titan the Robot. Watch jousting, pet beautiful ponies, or even take in a fascinating helicopter aerobatics display! Other attractions include parrot shows, vintage tractors, and a sports arena where people of all ages can play more than 20 different games. Children will even be able to meet local firemen and policemen and learn about their jobs.

Food, Drink, and Shopping

Of course, what would a day in the country be without great-tasting food and drink? If you love to cook, check out the cooking theatre where you can learn to make traditional country favourites. Do you prefer to skip the cooking and simply eat? The Suffolk Show is practically famous for amazing treats. You’ll even be able to do some shopping to take some home with you!

Safety at the Show

The Suffolk Show wants everybody to be safe during their visit. For this reason, children will be fitted with a bracelet at the door. The bracelet includes emergency contact information in case they become separated from parents.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but must be on a lead at all times. Dogs are not permitted in the ringside club or the food hall. Watering stations will be available on the north side of every ring and next to the cattle.

Tickets and Accommodation

Tickets to The Suffolk Show are available to purchase and print out online. Additionally, you can purchase tickets by phone, at local retailers, or at the gates. Early bird prices are available, and children under 15 are always free!
