Beccles Food and Drink Festival 2019
Celebrating it’s 5th year, the popular Beccles Food and Drink Festival is returning in 2019 to tantalise the taste buds. The free event, set for Saturday 25th May, will showcase over 70 food and drink stalls, many of them local artisan producers, as well as those from further afield in East Anglia. As well as many stalls which have supported the event from the start, new traders to feature include those making artisan Scotch eggs, Greek Cypriot skewers, Suffolk gin and vodka, and bacon relish, mayonnaise and mustard. Based in the centre of the vibrant market town around New Market, Sheepgate, in St Michael’s Church and the Public Hall, the Festival runs from 10 am till 4 pm and will include cookery demonstrations and talks, street food, music and children’s entertainment. A free Park & Ride shuttle service will run throughout the event from Beccles Quay, where additional parking will be available. Building on the successful formula of previous years, some new and exciting features, including Fringe events at some food and drink venues in the local area from the 18th May to the 2nd June, are planned.
