The popular coastal county of Suffolk is not only a hotbed for tourism, especially for those looking to escape the busy London life, but it’s also a hub of activity for those that live there. There is no shortfall of events throughout every town in the county providing countless opportunities for things to do and activities to partake in.

We found that there were vast amounts of people searching for what’s on in Suffolk so we wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to find out exactly what is on in Suffolk, when it’s on and how close their chosen location it is.
Our dedicated what’s on section does exactly that.

With so many things to see and do in Suffolk, it’s no wonder people flock from surrounding counties and notably London to visit the county. There seem to be more and more events happening in Suffolk each year and our aim is to bring you the best of the best. From what’s on in Suffolk this weekend to events and attractions coming up in the future – we have it covered.

Be sure to click onto each what’s on in Suffolk event listing to find out more about the event along with location details, links to the event website as well as social links.

All of our Suffolk events are organised by start date to make your life as easy as possible as we know how tricky it can be to browse through hundreds upon hundreds of events.
