The Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival is a celebration of food and drink produced and grown within Suffolk. In order to exhibit at the Festival we ask that you fulfil the following criteria:

  • Businesses must be based in Suffolk
  • Products sold must, in the main, be sourced (i.e. grown, made, foraged or reared) in Suffolk
  • Products sold must be available all year round, either online or in farm shops, supermarkets and other stores


Below you will find links to both application forms, depending on how long your business has been operating.

As a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, we exist to support local businesses and entrepreneurs. We therefore offered subsidised one-off fees to trade at the festival and charge no commission. We organise all the infrastructure so that you can concentrate on the produce, your story and sales.

The Festival organisers take great care to ensure that there is a wide variety of produce at the Festival and that similar products are not duplicated too many times. It is therefore occasionally necessary to decline a producer’s application. In this situation producers are welcome to reapply in following years.
