The day will also include an appearance from two Suffolk Punches, the SlackMagirdle Morris Dancing side from Newmarket and some specially commissioned art work from Suffolk resident Joel Millerchip.

Haverhill Mayor, Councillor David Smith, said: “Suffolk Day is a day which allows us to reflect on the positive aspects of our friendly, green, diverse, and welcoming county and all that it has to offer – and this year is particularly special with Haverhill being chosen as the host town.

“Haverhill embodies all the traditions and values that Suffolk is known for and it will be wonderful to see so many people coming out to celebrate our local community on the day.

“It’s a privilege to be representing Haverhill as the town Mayor on such an important day for both Suffolk and Haverhill.

“From local shops and businesses to our popular Friday market, Haverhill has a lot to be proud of and a lot to offer our county. This year’s celebrations centre around culture and creativity, something which Haverhill has in abundance, whether it’s the incredible talent of our local performers and artists, or the exciting variety of shows at the Arts Centre.”
