The annual event, which helped Bury St Edmunds to win Suffolk’s Most Active Town award in 2015, focuses on local sports clubs and groups and includes free taster sessions for people looking to try a new activity.

This year the Festival, which runs from October 23-29, is extending its boundaries to include the villages around Bury St Edmunds.

Among the highlights of this year’s Festival of Sport is the St Eds and Unique Bars Running Festival which offers races over 10k, half-marathon and marathon distance.  

There will also be opportunities to get involved with Rugby, Football, Nordic Walking and Yoga.  

The arc shopping centre in Charter Square will be the focus for many free taster sessions including Tennis, Netball and Badminton and will also host an evening 5k fun run around the town.  

For the armchair sports fan a Sports Aid Lunch is being held at The Athenaeum with the guest speaker cricket legend Geoff Miller.
