Waiting for Video...

The Knights of the Damned jousting team joined the exciting line-up of entertainment at this year’s annual Mid and West Suffolk Show.

The two day event saw hundreds of people descended on the show ground at Stonham Barns at the weekend.

Visitors were treated to displays from the Lowestoft Dog Agility Team, a majorette team, heavy horses including the famous Suffolk Punch, belly dancers, zorbing, classic cars and performances from singer songwriter Jessica Alice.

Despite Saturday’s gloomy weather Michelle Phillips-Naylor, from Stonham Barns’ events team, said the show was a success.

She said: “We had a little bit of everything.
“We even gave people the chance to scuba dive.

“ They had set up a special pool, the guys from the Fire and Rescue Service filled it for them, and anyone who wanted to could don a wet suit and have a go.

“We had the army cadets provide a marching band, we had classic cars, steam engines - I even had a little drive around on one myself, a first time for me.

“It was a really fun day, thoroughly enjoyed by everybody.
“Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too sharp on the Saturday but it made up for it on the Sunday.”
