Update 13/3/20: Unfortunately it has been decided to cancel this event in response to the evolving Corona virus situation.  We have based this decision on yesterday’s Government advice to adopt social distancing measures where possible. The SPS wishes to play its part in minimising the transmission of the virus and therefore considers in the circumstances it is appropriate to postpone the event. We hope that it can be rescheduled for later in the year.

Suffolk Food Hall, Wherstead, IP9 2AB.
