The Suffolk Show is a day out like no other – a unique celebration of food, farming and the countryside plus as much all round family entertainment it’s possible to pack into two days, including your chance to try some Slacklining ! Relax and enjoy a great day out during half term. The Suffolk Show is a fantastic day out for big kids and little kids alike and, as under 15’s go free, it’s great value for money too.
Slacklining is a growing sport, moving from a sub-culture to a main stream activity in just a few years. It's not surprising then, that there are numerous festivals featuring slacklining, demos and competitions. Although not a complete list, below is a list of slackline events based in the UK and further afield. Got any events to add or more information on the ones listed, then drop us a line.
