Book tickets

This year’s event is going to be a real celebration, it’s clearer than ever that food and drink and the way we share it with friends and family is a huge part of our lives. The Festival will have a very relaxed feel with plenty of space for all our visitors to move around and enjoy what’s on offer. We are looking forward to welcoming you back!

What's happening in 2021

New features this year will include interactive family area with family stage, Saturday Kitchen-style panel, food photography and wild cooking with the kids. Our Festival stages will feature all things foodie with not only live cooking demonstrations but also talks, debates and discoveries. We also hope to take a look at other areas associated to food such as technology, health & wellbeing and farming.
You will still find all your old favourites sitting alongside the new including plenty of fabulous local food and drink producers, hands on masterclasses, street food and live music.

Book Tickets

This was my first visit to Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival and what a wonderful part of the country it is too. The event itself was packed with truly unique and interesting producers and exhibitors, making it the ultimate food show for REAL food lovers. Plenty to do and see, lots to eat and drink and the variety of things to participate was incredible. I don’t think they will be able to keep me away next year, although this time, I plan on staying the whole weekend.

The Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival is a microcosm of what makes the Suffolk food economy so remarkable. You see the entrepreneurial energy, imagination and astonishing quality all brought together to produce some of the very best food in Britain

—Sheila Dillon, producer of the renowned BBC Radio 4 Food Programm
