Suffolk Owl Sanctuary will bring along various birds of prey for visitors to meet and learn about, and there will be live entertainment by Year Two children at St Peter and St Paul Primary School in Eye.

EyesWrite presents four new plays.
Plays on difficult topics – child violence, family life and dementia.
EyesWrite is proud to present four new one-act plays by local Suffolk writers.
Two of the plays by Roger Curtis, “Black Pearl” and “Child Star”, both vastly different in content and style. Roger is a long standing member of The Theatre Royal Writers in Bury St Edmunds. One play is a gothic tale while the other deals with the more serious subject of violence and children.
“Carnivores”, a gruesome tale, has been written by an up and coming writer, David Howgego, and tells us of what happens when a family of chefs sit down to eat. David has written for EyesWrite on other occasions and his plays have always been well received.
“Still Me”, a poignant play that deals with the problems of dementia and is set in a home for the elderly, has been written by local writer Josie Fuller. This is her debut play and we are sure it will not be her last.
