Wool Towns Events

From street fairs to carnivals, art exhibitions to literary events, the Wool Towns host a fantastic array of events for all the family, every week of the year.

The Wool Towns region offers a wealth of refined experiences from fine art galleries, concerts, museums, country houses and cultural and rural events. John Constable, Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Alfred Munnings and Cedric Morris all lived and worked within the area.  The Wool Towns sit between the historic market towns of Bury St Edmunds and Colchester, and on the East/West axis, between Haverhill and Ipswich.

The Suffolk Heritage coast is within an hour and a half’s drive.
