Your Your Guide to Suffolk Day Events on the Shotley Peninsula 2019

Hog Roast, Beetroot & Blues, Family Fun and Classic Walks

From fetes, family quizzes, hog roast and a themed walk to a Beetroot, Beers and Blues festival, the Shotley Peninsula is hosting a myriad events to support Suffolk Day (weekend) this year.

Start Friday's celebrations with a walk along the banks of the River Orwell from Pin Mill to Shotley Gate, following the Arthur Ransome Trail. An interesting six-miler with a well deserved drink or meal at either the Shipwreck or Bristol Arms as your reward. The Bristol Arm is having one of its legendary Hog Roasts, great for the whole tribe, starting at 7pm followed by a fun and friendly family quiz.

Alternatively, enter the Beetroot completion at the Wheatsheaf in Tattingstone as they hold a weekend festival to raise funds for the Blossom Appeal. There is live music, starting at 8.30pm with the Back Porch Band on Friday night, with Martin McNeill, Boogaloos Red and Chuck Willis Band playing on Saturday. With more than 20 beers and ciders to choose, along with soft drinks and lots of food, it promises to be  fun weekend at Ipswich and East Suffolk's CAMRA pub of the year (2018 and 2019)

For those who like your traditional fetes, then Ipswich High School is holding their annual event on Saturday, June 22, from 1pm, so go along and enjoy the beautiful grounds of Woolverstone Hall.

Alton water is hosting the Great East Swim on Saturday, June 22, with a wide range of distance races for all ages and abilities, with plenty going on to keep the spectators and competitors entertained.

Suffolk Food Hall is welcoming schoolchildren to experience, up close and personal, the seven native breeds of animals synonymous with Suffolk from 1.30pm.
