A celebration of Suffolk’s thriving food & drink scene

Book tickets

We are busy researching and planning for the 2020 event in the hope that we might be able to welcome you all to celebrate the amazing abundance of food and drink producers in this very special county. It is unlikely to be the Festival we all know and love but we will do our best to keep as much of the spirit alive as possible.
We wish all our producers and visitors well at this very uncertain time and will do our best to support the local food industry when and where we can.


So what happened in 2019....

We hope you all enjoyed the 2019 Festival it was full of foodie fun, from tastings and demonstrations to ‘roll up your sleeves and get stuck in’ masterclasses. We welcomed many new faces but also celebrated with returning friends too.

Take a look

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
