A traditional Suffolk country fair will be held in Hockwold on Sunday.

Hockwold Country Fair is in its 14th year and this time round will not just be inviting Suffolk Punch horses into the grand ring.

The iconic horses will be joined by a Samba band and morris dancers who will entertain the crowds.

As well as events in the grand ring visitors will be entertained by classic cars, vintage tractors, steam engines and craft, food and trade stalls.

For younger visitors a variety of amusements and entertainment will be on offer to ensure a great day out.

Tony Crosby, chairman of the country fair committee, said: “The highlight this year is we have the Suffolk Punch display and we have Norwich Samba and Morris Dancers.

“We have parades with the classic cars and steam engines.”

The fair raises funds for the organisations and charities that operate in the village while providing an enjoyable day out.
