Feast previews Beccles Food and Drink Festival next month
Beccles Food and Drink Festival is taking place on Saturday, August 14 and is set to feature an array of food and drink stalls, many of them local artisan producers, as well as those from further afield in East Anglia.
About 10 new traders to the event will sell rum, chilli sauces, apple juice, macarons, olive oil and shortbread.
Based in the centre of the market town around New Market, Sheepgate, and in and around St Michael’s Church, the Festival runs from 10am to 4pm and will also include a selection of street food, music and children’s entertainment.
In addition to town centre parking, a free Park and 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, the delayed easing of pandemic restrictions has resulted in a more streamlined event this year, but nevertheless promises to be a memorable one.
Organiser Paul Parravani comments: ‘Having been unable to host the Festival in 2020, we are looking forward to holding as full an event as possible. It is due to be one of the first events of its type to be held in the region now that Covid restrictions have been further relaxed, and though this year’s Festival will look a little different to normal, it should celebrate a wonderfully diverse range of local produce.’
Keep an eye on the Festival’s website and social media for updates.
