New attractions will add to the fun alongside popular favourites at this year’s Ourburystedmunds Whitsun Fayre over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Making its debut at a major town centre event is Lisa Jayne’s Sweet Shop and Shake Bar in a converted London double-decker bus, which will be among the highlights for children in the arc shopping centre.

Alongside it there is a circus skills workshop, giant games and fun with science experiments.

The free fayre returning attractions include the urban beach in the Traverse, mini-farm at the top of Abbeygate Street and a flower and plant market, as well as other market stalls in Cornhill and Buttermarket.

Ourburystedmunds chief executive Mark Cordell, said: “I really believe we have something for everyone. The motorsports show on Angel Hill is new for us this year and I hope it will be a big draw.

“For parents, I doubt they’ll find a better town centre day out this weekend, with the number of free activities we’re putting on.

“Once again I’m delighted that so many of the town’s businesses are getting involved and supporting the event with their own stalls.”

The Whitsun Fayre will be supporting the Royal National Lifeboat Institution again and Ourburystedmunds has supplied sticks of seaside rock for volunteers to sell to raise funds.

It runs from 10am to 4pm on Sunday and Monday.
