Take a look at the interactive map which has been created to show you what events are happening on Suffolk Day and where you can find them.

Suffolk Day is a celebration of the wonderful county we call home.

The day, which will take place on June 21, is packed with fun events and activities for you to take part in.

The map shows you a full list of what you can expect but to name a few there is a powerboat racing at Oulton Broad, historic beer tasting at Southwold, a Mummers’ performance at Saxmundham, a barn dance at Stowmarket and lots more. Many pubs are also getting involved – including the Westleton Crown, Dunwich Ship, Case is Altered in Bentley and The Arbor House, Ipswich. There will also be guided walks in the likes of Stowmarket, Hadleigh and Lavenham.

The celebration is backed by the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star as well as BBC Radio Suffolk, the day was a huge success last year with hundreds enjoying the sunshine at Suffolk Day events.
