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
