The following day, Saturday, June 8, the annual Bungay Country Market will be held at the town’s Butter Cross.

The team will be offering homemade cakes, savouries, cookies and scones as well as homegrown plans, flowers and homemade crafts, from 8.30am to 1pm.

And at 11.45am, town reeve Mary Sprake and mayor Mary Matthews will hoist the Bigod flag at Bungay Castle to signal the start of the festival festivities.
