Sudbury Town Council Events

Sudbury Town Council prides itself on organising a range of free community events throughout the year to encourage greater community engagement and build awareness of what the town has to offer. Where possible, Sudbury Town Council use local suppliers as this supports local businesses and has a greater economic benefit to the region. We believe that in small rural towns, where leisure facilities aren’t as high as neighboring towns, it’s important to organise and encourage a wealth of events to celebrate and connect our community.


An exhibition held in Sudbury Town Hall and St Peters Church, promoting local Charities, Voluntary Groups, Sports clubs and Organisations in and around Sudbury to increase community engagement. Each exhibitor has a FREE table to promote their activities and is featured in the Sudbury on Show directory. The directory is a useful guide to the numerous organisations and activities taking place in Sudbury and the surrounding area. It is distributed at the event and is then available at the Town Hall and the Tourist Information Centre. It is also distributed to local estate agents for the town’s newcomers.
