The Suffolk Day Big Weekender is fast approaching – and now you can buy a host of Suffolk Day merchandise to celebrate the big day.
The third annual Suffolk Day festivities, which kick off from June 21, look to bring the county together in celebration of everything that makes Suffolk so special.
Taking place on the longest day of the year, the county will be a hive of activity - from parades and garden parties to events for children and services of remembrance.
To make sure everyone is kit out in style for the big day, a Suffolk Day shop has been launched - offering a variety of Suffolk-themed mugs, t-shirts, banners, flags and bunting.
This year’s Suffolk Day is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.
