If you are a self-confessed foodie who would rather sample local fare than see museums, you definitely shouldn’t miss out on the annual Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival.

It’s a celebration of seasonal, zero-kilometre produce that boosts the local economy, encourages people to grow and cook their own food from scratch, and provides a fantastic meeting point for enjoying a fantastic meal with friends and family.

The event is participated in by a plethora of food and drink producers, so it offers serious gastronomes a wide range of exciting items for purchase, including raw milk, organic veggies, a wide variety of breads, renowned beers and spirits and more. A host of food trucks make their way to the festival site, to serve cuisine influenced from all over the world.

An event highlight are the cooking demonstrations where budding chefs can be inspired by experts showcasing their recipes on stage.
