This year my wife Julie and I decided to take our two kids to the Suffolk Show, it was our first visit, and I have to say I was more than impressed with the whole thing. It was really good to get a true taste of just what the countryside and towns in Suffolk have to offer.

From older traditional trades like farriers, farming and other agricultural businesses, to hundreds of varied trade stands selling everything from
great foods of all kinds, I bought some of the best cheeses I’ve ever tasted! Locally made clothes designers, art work or all kinds, interior designers, sporting events and of course a great range of local beers and ciders too. The show lasts for two days and quite frankly you definitely need both days to see all that’s on offer, the sheer variety of activities and attractions was huge!

The second day even saw Prince Harry come along to judge the ‘best in class’ farm animals, he probably got to pick out the best strawberry jam in the county too!
He went down really well, coverage of Harry’s visit was everywhere around our town for everyone to see.

We could only go for one day, but will definitely be back next year, here’s a selection of images from my day at the County fair.
