Whilst our volunteer editors will do their best to ensure our events listings are as up to date and accurate as possible; with the fast pace of how things are changing, it is inevitable that some will slip through the net. If you are planning on travelling for larger events, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly to avoid disappointment. We are putting in place new measures to give event organisers a friendly reminder to see if they wish to remove cancelled events, so we're sorry if it looks a bit bare in here :(

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for free, professional advice.

Events this Month

Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot on 11th June 2023, 11th June 2023, 7:00 to 13:00 at Stonham Car Boot, Pettaugh Road, Stonham Aspal (16.1 miles)

Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot on 11th June 2023


Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot – Another 200 sellers last Sunday so that’s 2 weeks in a row. We are expecting these to increase further as we get into Summer and also expecting to beat our record of 260 sellers. More good weather means another big crowd of sellers again plus we are getting great buying crowds in so see you on Sunday.

So just turn up and sell from £6 no booking needed, Covered stalls are available to reserve for any Sunday/Bank Holiday Monday by texting 07817539168 and we also have some great news for Sellers/Buyers at Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot as we now have a licence allowing all Plant/Bulb Sellers or in fact any Gardening sellers to sell at the Car Boot. So NO RESTRICTIONS at all with any Gardening items. This is great news as I've had to turn so many people away. This is already bringing in a lot more sellers and buyers to Stonham. So, come and sell every Sunday. We are expecting some of the big plant and bulb sellers to start selling soon.

We are the best priced & still the friendliest Car Boot in Suffolk so come & sell from only £6 and it’s still free parking & buying & everyone welcome to just turn up and have a look around as there’s so much to do at Stonham.

I've had a few questions about when we actually start. We always used to start at 8am and most people do still turn up at 8/8.30 but, we do get people arriving stupidly early onwards. So, it's really up to you. 7 onwards is sensible. We have enough space for everyone.
Events run at the same time as the Car Boot so a bigger crowd always expected. The next is Ancient History Alive on 25th June followed by English Civil War on the 9th July. 2 events were cancelled so we have a gap until the 25th June but we have one a week from July to August and some great Car Shows coming up.

Prices have remained the same with selling at £6 for cars. Cars with trailers £8.50, Small Vans £8.50 and large vans £12, Vans with Trailers are also £12. There is NO NEED TO BOOK. Covered Stalls are available for every Sunday/Bank Holiday Monday but these do go very quickly as there are only 20. These ONLY can be pre-booked on 07817539168 (text to pre-book). These offer some shade to sellers as well as a tabletop & protection against wind & rain. These are on the main field and you pull in behind them and set up. Everyone else wishing to sell at Stonham can just turn up on the day.

Everyone loves Stonham as its unbeatable when the weather is good. It has a great atmosphere and a knowledgeable friendly crowd made up of all ages. Families young and old, dog friendly and it caters for the disabled. You can still sell from Six Pounds right up to Twelve Pounds for Covered stalls. These are really a hit with the sellers as you can book by texting 07817539168 pull up behind set up and sell and pack up and leave at the end of the day. They also guarantee a main field position near to toilets and Drinks/Food.

Alternatively, we are still the cheapest in Suffolk so you can just turn up from 7am and sell and that’s every Sunday & Bank Holiday Mondays from April to November. We are also lucky to benefit from regular events at Stonham where the Car Boot crowd is often doubled & that’s on top of a very big buying crowd.

Again, a big thanks to the majority who followed the distancing and one-way routes and abide by our strict no harassment policy which is why Stonham Barns Car Boot is always such a friendly place to sell and buy at.

We let Buyers in at the same time as sellers but – please allow me to get everyone into position so please don’t hinder this and please don’t stand behind cars whilst they unload. No one is going to jump in and buy before you as it just isn’t that kind of car boot. The reason we have become so popular is because we don’t have people harassing sellers. If anyone oversteps their mark we will stop buyers entering the field until gone 7am.

We are outdoors only but offer covered stalls. We will always try to open every week irrespective of the weather as we still get buyers and sellers.

Stonham Barns Car Boot every Sunday & proper Bank Holiday Mondays.
