What’s on in Suffolk: Bank holiday weekend

Saturday 30th April:


Ever thought about what is unearthed underneath us in Suffolk? An Open Day in Bury St Edmunds gives you both adults and children a chance to learn about the recent archaeological discoveries. This gives local residents opportunity to tour the current excavations and  see the beginnings of what’s to come on the next part. Very exciting for people with a keen interest in the area’s history. Take a look: http://bit.ly/1VEtCBL

Racing at the Guineas


Enjoy the bank holiday weekend at the Guineas Festival in Newmarket, with the town celebrating 350 years of Making History. The event starts the flat racing season with two Classic races, the QIPCO 2000 and 1000 Guineas. The event includes a Spitfire Flypast, opening of the 350 Time Capsule, and the reading of a specially commissioned poem. Children under 18 go free, there is face painting and bouncy castles for them as well, alongside the racing. The event opens at 11:30am, and first race is at 2pm.

 Sunday 1st May:

This year marks the 46th Ipswich to Felixstowe historic vehicle run, with over 500 vehicles from cars to lorries gathering at 11:30 in Christchurch Park and then congregating at Felixstowe Promenade.  The event is free to attend at any point in the journey.
