FRAMLINGHAM COUNTRY SHOW and Suffolk Food, Drink and Music Festival

The Framlingham Country Show and the Suffolk Food, Drink and Music Festival is set in the stunning surroundings of Framlingham College, very rarely seen by the public. The show promises a fabulous array of main ring attractions like the extraordinary Sheep Show, Falconry displays, Shire Horses, Sheep Racing, Dog and Duck Herding and much more. There will also be a fantastic dog area with dog rings with dog agility, flyball, dog shows run by Paws of Parham and Earl Soham Vets and we will have the unique Honiahaka Northern Inuit Dogs at the show. As well as all of this we have the Terrier and Lurcher racing which will be great fun. So bring your dog along for a doggy fun day out.

Alongside these wonderful attractions will be some fabulous Rural Crafters and their demonstrations which will be a delight to watch from Thomas Jones, Woodlands Sticks, furniture making, blacksmiths, basket weaving and so much more. Why not come along and watch one of our many cookery demonstrations by local Chefs or listen to one of our eight bands playing daily.

If it is something for the smaller people you are after come along and see Gemma’s petting zoo and hold one of her many animals or if it is the Reptile variety you prefer, Amazing Reptiles is the stand you are after where you will have the opportunity to hold a snake, bearded dragon or tortoise. Why not try one of our Circus workshops or have a laugh at Cosmo the Clown and his friends from the Foolhardy Circus.

The event will also host some wonderful shopping to include everything from food to craft to lifestyle shopping. Come and try out all the Chilli products at our amazing Chilli Festival to held at the same time. Meet our food producers and find out where you food comes from, or meet one of our many Crafts people who make their own products, or simply spoil yourself with something from our Lifestyle marquee including Vintage Shopping.
