County and Country Fairs are an opportunity for the local communities to celebrate the rural way of life and are very popular with visitors too! They are big, bustly events and are often held in large show-grounds or in the grounds of Country House estates.
Our most local is the ‘Suffolk Game & Country Fair’ held at Glemham Hall in May each year – it’s just 5 miles away (approx 10 mins by car) from your holiday cottage in Saxmundham; and the ‘Heveningham Hall Country Fair’ is held near Halesworth, in July (approx 20 mins drive).
The (Suffolk) County Show is held during the May Half-Term holidays at Trinity Park, Ipswich, and is the biggest show of the County – with amazing ring displays, and over 1,000 livestock exhibits.
