The show, organised by Classic Festivals, takes place in the grounds of Framlingham College, College Road, from 10am to 5pm both days, and features a wide range of attractions.

These include a dog festival packed with activities, children’s events, food and crafts stalls, living history, vehicle displays, and demonstrations.

Celebrity chef Alan Coxon, author of six books and ranked among the Top 10 TV Chefs of the world by BBC world viewers, will be among those giving cookery demonstrations, along with Claudio Bincoletto – Italian chef and forager – and Mary Pannapara, who will be exploring her Indian culinary roots, and Peter Harrison, who has nearly 30 years restaurant experience.

Ring displays include Shetland ponies, World of Wings, Horseback Falconry, a motorbike stunt team, fly fishing, sheep racing, and the chance to find out about reptiles.

Those going along will also have the opportunity to win a ride through beautiful wooded valleys on white horses and to fly hawks. The prize, donated by horesmanship and falconry expert Jonathan Marshall, is part of a silent auction in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice.

The winners will enjoy a three-hour experience meeting Lusitano and Andalusian horses and birds of prey and see them performing classical dressage and Spanish high schooling moves, before the ride and flying hawks to a gloved hand.
