The Festival

A celebration of Suffolk's thriving food & drink scene

The Festival takes place in the beautiful setting of Snape Maltings. Next to the River Alde and close to the Suffolk coast, where reed-covered marshlands stretch into the distance towards Aldeburgh.

With over 90 food and drink producers from Suffolk, many from just a few miles away, all gathered to sell their produce including raw milk, organic vegetables, sourdough bread, award winning beer and spirits from sponsors Adnams, cyder from Aspall and delicious streetfood.

The Festival is truly family friendly with free tickets for under 15s with free children's activities and hands on cooking workshops.

Not only is there an amazing array of local produce but the festival also has 2 cookery demonstration stages hosting visiting and local chefs. Over the past few years we have had some amazing chefs come to Suffolk to include; Valentine Warner, Henry Harris, Thomasina Miers, Sabrina Ghayour, Natalie Colemann, Jane Baxter to name but a few.

Planning is now underway for the 2016 festival
