Thousands are expected to flock to Rougham Airfield for the West Suffolk Game and Country Show.

The inaugural show, on June 29 and 30, takes place from 10am to 5pm each day.

Oakleigh Fairs has organised the event. Its managing director Charlie Owen said: “For many years we provided the craft marquee for Sir John Agnew and his numerous events at Rougham, and with his sad demise two years ago, we felt it would be a fitting tribute to Sir John, to rekindle the country shows of days gone by, which is why we are launching this.

“We have taken the old model, shaken it up with some new acts and entertainment, but hopefully wew have kept somne of the best bits and will continue to build on their success for the future.”

It will include a jousting tournament, birds of prey and owl displays, a medieval village, heavy horse display, steam engines, vintage cars, dog show and more.

Entry costs £7 for adults, concessions £6, £3 for over fives and £18 for a family ticket, while under fives get in for free.
