The South Suffolk Show

IP33 1


The Early May Bank Holiday has been moved this year to Friday 8th May to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on the day itself, which was first celebrated on 8th May 1945 when Allied Forces formally accepted Germany’s surrender. To honour the privilege of sharing this 3 day weekend, the South Suffolk Show will proudly feature a grand ring demonstration of farming through the ages, from the forties to the future, displaying the machinery that would have been used during the Second World War right through to the current electronic era, and beyond!

And knowing that friends and family might be visiting for the long weekend, the hugely popular and exceptionally talented Atkinsons Action Horses will be returning to the South Suffolk Show to perform some astonishing stunts on their magnificent steeds. Based in Yorkshire the Atkinson Action Horses are renowned for their film and television work, and the horses have become famous following their appearances on Poldark, Peaky Blinders and Victoria. Although we cannot give you the smouldering Aidan Turner who plays Poldark himself, we are very excited to have the real deal and equally handsome Ben Atkinson who not only trains the horses with his father Mark Atkinson, but taught Aidan Turner to ride and has also been the riding double on Poldark! Ben and his team will perform two displays of stunning horsemanship in the grand ring at The South Suffolk Show, which are not to be missed!

As always there will be plenty to see and do outside the grand ring including wood carvers in action, farriers in the forge, birds of prey on the wing, gun dogs working, terriers racing and new for this year, the Ferretworld Roadshow who will be looking for volunteers young and old to race against their ferrets! Not to mention the Art and Craft Marquee packed with unique creations, the Food Hall full of tempting treats and sheep, pigs, cattle and horses all competing for rosettes amongst tradestands galore!

Come and celebrate country life at The South Suffolk Show, why go anywhere-else!
