THRILL seekers will take on an assault course under the Orwell Bridge while food fans will be served up sizzling sausages in Ipswich during the first ever Suffolk Day.
Bell ringers, thespians and film lovers will come together to celebrate everything that makes Suffolk shine today – with hundreds invited to join in.
Visitors to the county town will be greeted with the smell of specially made Suffolk Day sausages as they pass the Rose House Butchery in St Peter’s Street.
Flavoured with maple-cured smoked bacon and Aspall cyder and made from Breckland pork, the sausages have been hand-crafted by owner Jamie Willows.
Over the past few days, he has been making batches formed of more than 100 sausages each – but it is all worth it for Suffolk Day, he said.
