Beccles Food Festival-0721
bfd19_0295

Now in it’s 6th year, Beccles Food and Drink Festival is back in 2020 with a feast of culinary delights.  The free Festival features over 80 food and drink stalls, many of them local artisan producers, as well as those from further afield in East Anglia.  Based in the centre of the vibrant market town, the Festival will include cookery demonstrations and talks, world street food, musicians and children’s entertainment.  A free Park & Ride shuttle service will run throughout the day from Beccles Quay, where additional parking will be available.  Building on the successful formula of previous years, the Festival is set to repeat Fringe events in the local area a week either side of the main Festival day.

Updates to the Festival will be posted on the Festival website and Facebook at regular intervals, so keep checking back to keep abreast of the latest developments.

News

This year the Festival is moving back to a location we have not used for many years, Hungate Church. This will be the new home of the Cookery Theatre and will also provide some additional seating and indoor stall will be in the church hall.

For those who may not have visited this location we hope you have the opportunity to visit and watch and taste some great local produce.

Full Steam Ahead

The organising committee are now working tirelessly preparing for the 2020 Festival.

There are a number of exciting changes coming your way this year plus of course many of the “old” favorites.

Stallholders have been contacted and places are filling up quickly with a deadline of 31 January to have ll of the paperwork sent in.

This year there will be a number of new producers on show so watch this space for more information.

See you on Saturday 23rd May 2020.
