The Suffolk Show is a real highlight in our region’s calendar and, in just over one week, the green fields of Trinity Park will once again be alive with the sound of cheering crowds, lowing cattle and live music, amid a cacophony of educational activities and entertainment for the people of Suffolk.

In this week’s episode of Suffolk Money Podcast, Colin was delighted to catch up with Phillip Ainsworth (Chief Executive of the Suffolk Agricultural Association) and Tony Pulham (Deputy show director), as they prepare to open the gates and welcome tens of thousands of visitors in what promises to be a particularly unique and special year.

Held at the start of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the 2022 show will be a great opportunity for Suffolk to come together and celebrate the last seven decades of her majesty’s reign. Phillip and Tony tell Colin about all about the planning that has gone into this year’s show and how they’ve used the downtime, during the enforced two-year hiatus, in a positive and productive way to improve the facilities and the experience, to make sure this year’s show is truly inclusive and a fantastic day out for all.

The show’s primary purpose since it first began in 1831, has been to deliver education about food, farming, agriculture, the countryside and the wider environment. It continues to shine a light on our county’s rich rural heritage, celebrating the crucial role our farmers, landowners and rural businesses play in the local economy, whilst offering an enormous variety of family-friendly activities; there really is something for everyone.
