Suffolk Village of the Year 2023

Community Council August News

September will be a busy month for us. Our Country & Western evenings get underway again when we welcome back Gary Blackmore. Following that we have the annual Cockfield Village Show and then we have an evening of 60s and 70s music with Kevin Barry. There’s plenty here for everyone and we look forward to seeing you all and one or other of the events.

Country & Western evenings

Our C & W dances get underway again, after the summer break, on Saturday 3rd September when we have Garry Blackmore entertaining us. Tickets, as always will be £6, on the door, and there will be a licensed bar and barbecue. Doors open at 7.30 pm.

On Saturday 1st October we have Budgie Colman with us and on 5th November Kenny Lee and Hustler are back.

Cockfield Village Show

Preparations are gathering pace for The Village Show which will take place on Sunday 11th September. In addition to the produce and craft shows the children from Cockfield School will demonstrate their maypole skills. Dave Donuts will be there to entertain the children (and quite a few adults) with, amongst other things, his Punch & Judy show and ,of course, we will have our usual classic car display. With craft and food stalls, a barbecue, licensed bar, tea stall and various games of skill around the gardens of Clipt Bushes, we are looking forward to another traditional country village show.

We will have a raffle, tombola and bric-a-brac stall and will welcome donations to any of these.

More Music and Murder Comes to Cockfield!!!

The Village Show is followed by the 60s and 70s evening with Kevin Barry on Saturday 17th September. Kevin is immensely popular with audiences throughout East Anglia and we anticipate that this event will be well supported.  Tickets will be £6 on the door and there will be a barbecue and licensed bar. Doors open at 7.15 pm.

On Saturday November 19th we’re planning a Murder Mystery Evening. Tickets will be priced at £7.50 (with supper!) and  further details are included in this edition of Green Links.

Flix in the Stix

Plans are now well under way to bring the big screen to Cockfield! Watch this space for details of our first film show, which will feature one of the latest releases and which will be shown in the Village Hall on a Friday evening.


Our AGM is on November 25th so please come along – remember it is YOUR Community Council and it is at the AGM that our direction for the next year is decided, so it is important that everyone with an opinion about the way we are going or suggestions for future events comes along.
