Some pictures of one of the Living History scenes, featuring Alice and Richard Frere, whose family owned 'Caltofts' in the seventeenth century. this was perfoemed on the front steps of St John's while there was other sences going on in the town.

We had heritage animals -  with cute, little bantams in the churchyard, sheep on the market place and a Suffolk Punch in the yard of the Cap. And we had glorious weather!  We couldn't ask for more.
