Occold: Beaconsfield Arms beer and sausage festival will go ahead over August Bank Holiday weekend despite signs being destroyed

The Beaconsfield Arms pub is planning a beer and sausage festival later this month

A Suffolk pub’s attempt to promote its upcoming food and drink festival hit a setback when the landlords discovered that their advertising had been destroyed.

The Beaconsfield Arms, in Occold, near Eye, was trying to publicise its beer and sausage festival over the August bank holiday – but Sophie and Marc Prescott soon realised their efforts had been thwarted after finding the fragments of their signs at the side of the road.

Mrs Prescott said: “We put them out in the afternoon and found the remains of some of them the following afternoon. They weren’t of huge value – not much more than £20 – but it’s more about the time we took putting them up. We’ve no idea what happened but we’re worried about doing it again.

“There were two or three miles between the signs.”

The pub will still persevere with the festival, from August 22-25, with 13 beers, four ciders and 20 varieties of sausage available. The event runs from 12noon-11pm each day, with a band at 3pm on the Sunday and solo artists on the Friday and Saturday.
