All you need to know about the bank holiday Whitsun Fayre in Bury St Edmunds

A plethora of plant and flower stalls will make a return to Bury St Edmunds for the Whitsun Fayre today and tomorrow.

The event may look a little different to previous years as it’s had to be scaled down in accordance with government guidelines, but there will still be plenty of treats in store for visitors.

The two-day event, held in the town centre and on Angel Hill, will feature a selection of food and drink traders, crafts, flowers and charity stalls.

The event, organised by the Our Bury St Edmunds business improvement district (BID), grew out of the old flower and continental market.

Our Bury St Edmunds chief executive Mark Cordell said: "The weather looks like being lovely for the Bank Holiday weekend and is superb timing for our Whitsun Fayre.

"We have taken steps to make the event safe for all who attend and hope that many in the local community will come into town and support our businesses and the traders at the Fayre”

You'll find flower and plant stalls as well as craft stalls in Buttermarket and Cornhill, a selection of food and drink, charity stalls and a Flower, Food & Craft Market on Angel Hill.

Held each day between 10am and 4pm, there will be plenty of opportunity to try a tasty treat, maybe find a unique gift, buy some plants to brighten up your garden and support local charities and businesses.

The event is free.
