Suffolk’s foodie capital Bury St Edmunds shows why it’s earned that reputation this weekend when it holds its Food & Drink Festival on Sunday and Monday.

Another free, fun, family event is set to bring the streets of Bury St Edmunds alive with entertainment when the town’s Food and Drink Festival returns this weekend.

As well as getting the chance to sample a wide variety of cuisines on Sunday and Monday, August 27 and 28, between 10am and 5pm, there will be plenty of entertainment to enjoy too.

Always popular with families will be the beach returning to Charter Square in the arc shopping centre. Parents can pull up a deckchair while children happily play in the sand.

Dozens of stalls will be in the town centre, there will be children’s activities, face painting and street entertainment at the event put on by Our Bury St Edmunds.

Pop down to Angel Hill and you will find a farmers’ market tempting you to stock up your pantry with some delicious produce and treats.

Meanwhile, back in the centre of town at the Stoves Cookery Stage, visitors can feast on a comprehensive menu of local chefs, eateries and wine and cocktail specialists showing us how to prepare a wide range of treats.

Those appearing over the two days are: Zack Deakins (1921), Marian Grosoiu (Rustico), John Jackaman (ICE), George Aldous (Forage Kitchen), Tom Slegg (Angel Hotel), Watthanaphong and Arirat Thiranukun (Giggling Squid), Alison Turner and Christopher Pask (Primal 8), Vasilis Pango (The Olive Grove), Chriss Lee (Three Kings), Brad Dorrington (The Wine Cellar), Alex Rotherham (Bay Tree Café), Lilian Hiw (Lilian’s Kitchen and Max Baskerville (Baskervilles).
