Town Events in Halesworth in 2024/25

In normal times there are some excellent events in Halesworth through the year. Outdoor events in Halesworth town centre easily accommodate stalls, attractions, entertainment and visitors in the pedestrianised Thoroughfare and the Market Place. A large car park is adjacent to Thoroughfare, with the Town Park beyond. The town river connects Thoroughfare with the Town Park, so the resident ducks may be seen joining in with events.

Below are the main annual events but there are also lots of other events you can find listed on the Blythweb Calendar.
