One of the longest-running events is Framlingham Gala, or Gala Fest as it is now known, which dates right back to the 1880s. As well as the parade through the town, it features a wide range of other events and entertainment each summer.
Trimley Carnival is another long-running summer celebration. In 2019 it marked its 50th anniversary, with the twin villages coming together for a golden event.
Sadly, all the events which were due to be held this summer had to be cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions, but organisers are looking forward to when they can return.
