This years Beccles Food & Drink Festival is to be held on Saturday 28th May 2016, running from 9:30am to 5:30pm. There will be free parking at Beccles Quay car park, here visitors will be greeted, presented with a map detailing the grazing trail through the town and will have the option to board a free horse drawn carriage to carry them into town and to the start of the trail.
The ethos behind organising the festival is to champion the local food and drink producers, suppliers and businesses from within the Waveney Valley area. At the heart of this area is Beccles, a vibrant market town, boasting 3 independent butchers, 2 greengrocers, a fishmongers together with 2 delis. These combine with several restaurants to present a mouth-watering option to food lovers. The core aims of the festival will be to showcase the abundance of fabulous food grown, produced and consumed in the region whilst promoting the wonderful, historic market town of Beccles.
To complement the many foods and drinks on offer there will be live cookery demonstrations throughout the day plus talks and tasting sessions. These will be at pre-determined times so keep an eye on the schedule detailed on your complimentary map.
With businesses including Stoke Sauces, The Norfolk Truffle Company, Suffolk Smokehouse, Twyfords and many more attending we look forward to welcoming you and your family to a day of trying, learning and above all tasting wonderful foods!
