It’s Suffolk Day! June 21, it’s a day to celebrate everything we love about our great county.

There are dozens of events running right across Suffolk today, from a mini market of local producers in Sudbury to Morris Dancing at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket.

Behind the scenes tours are being held at 16th century manor house and grounds Glemham Hall, and more than 300 school pupils will take part in a farming and agriculture event at Hollow Trees Farm in Semer.

The Orwell Bridge will provide an iconic backdrop to a range of events at the Suffolk Food Hall this afternoon, which will include 4x4 assault courses and the chance to get up close to a number of Suffolk horses.

The Suffolk Punch Trust will also be celebrating the mighty native horse.

Of course, we want to know how you will be celebrating the inaugural Suffolk Day today.
