The free Mar­itime Woodbridge fes­ti­val, cel­e­brat­ing Woodbridge’s mar­itime and river­side her­itage, will re­turn from 9-10 Septem­ber. Nor­mally held every other year, the com­mu­nity event had to make way last year for the re­de­vel­op­ment of the Whis­stock’s Boatyard site, on River Deben in Suf­folk. Now the new Whis­stocks River­side Centre is ready for use and the new Long­shed and the River­side Square will be­come the heart of this her­itage week­end. Tra­di­tional boats will line the quay and activities will in­clude smack boat rac­ing, free en­try to the Tide Mill, the tra­di­tional cor­a­cle pond, mu­sic, lec­tures, ex­hibits, demos, food stalls and a Saxon re-en­act­ment camp, and the lo­cal sailing clubs will open their doors. www.mar­itime­wood­
