History

The Suffolk Show was staged at different venues round the County but in 1960 moved to its permanent site in Ipswich where it still is today. The Showground covers 100 hectares in total - 40 hectares of which is exhibition area.  If you would like to find out more about the history of the Suffolk Show, copies of our 175th Anniversary book "Suffolk - The Fine Farming County" can be purchased by calling 01473 707110.
