The South Suffolk Show is on track to record its best year ever after more than 10,000 people flocked to enjoy the entertainment.

Visitors to the 125th show on Sunday saw some of the county’s finest livestock as well as some dare-devil antics from further afield during the traditional one-day agricultural show.

The Australian Kangaroo Kid, who has previously marvelled crowds at Ampton racecourse on his quad bike, was joined for the first time by his son to deliver twice the thrills.

Show secretary, Geoff Bailes, said this year’s show was ‘very good’ and has received emails from traders and visitors since Sunday praising exhibits, entertainment and the staff who ensured everyone had a great day out.

He said: “people do come back year after year it’s because of the atmosphere although it’s getting to be a fairly large show you can get around it in a day.”

This year’s attractions included a popular food hall, a display of traditional farming machinery and classic cars while in the Countryside Ring crowds were amazed by The Eagle Heights Falconry Display Team, the East Anglian Terrier Club and the Suffolk Gundog Club.
