HUNDREDS flocked to Bacton at the weekend for the village’s popular flower show and fayre.

The crowds, of more than 1,500 people, were entertained by a spectacular parachute display from the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment parachute display team, a vintage and classic car show, African drumming and dance classes and performances by the Stowmarket Concert Band.

The show also featured, for the first time, a live music stage sponsored by the John Peel Centre nicknamed BacFest featuring a host of local musical talent.

Bacton Flower Show and Fayre committee member Phillip Jeffries said the event had been a tremendous success.

He said: “It all went really well - there was something for everyone of all age groups.

“We did have a couple of showers but because we have so much tentage the visitors ran undercover when it rained, then rushed back out when it had stopped.”
