Hannah Scott, 13, holds her winning chocolate and orange Chelsea buns with judge Jon Gay, the head chef at Jimmy's Farm, and Suffolk Age UK's George Chilvers at the charity's bake-off at the Sausage and Beer Festival at Jimmy's Farm on Sunday, 27 July.

A celebration of beer, sausages and music was enjoyed by hundreds of festival-goers at a Suffolk attraction over the weekend.

The Sausage and Beer Festival returned to Jimmy’s Farm in Wherstead near Ipswich for two days of “funky music, best quality bangers and real beer”.

Musical acts including X Factor winner Matt Cardle, pop rock trio Dodgy and Ipswich youngsters Polar Collective took to the main paddock’s “Truck Stage” to fill the air with “beautiful lyrics and uplifting beats”.

Elsewhere, in the Cookhouse, professional chefs including Valentine Warner, James Barber and Gennaro Contaldo entertained the crowds with their cooking prowess. And each evening the farm restaurant was transformed into a Tryolean beer keller, with long tables, oompah music and a specialist sausage menu.

Theatre in the Forest returns to Jimmy’s Farm as Shakespeare meets the wild west (with a dash of Richard Curtis) in Red Rose Chain’s As You Like It.

Katherine Jenkins is one of the few artists who could look perfectly picturesque gliding towards the Waterfront Stage at Latitude Festival.

Festival goers to Latitude put their best fashion foot forward at the Suffolk festival.

The melodic guitar riffs blared out with a bouncing success as Two Door Cinema Club took to the Obelisk stage on Saturday afternoon.

Skies were looking grim over the main stage but the chilled, dance anthems of Milky Chance managed to just keep the weather at bay, and get everyone in the crowd dancing and jumping in time with the guitar beat.

American comic Reginald D Hunter was at his offensive best despite having to perform his set from a wheelchair after breaking a leg.

With his charming good looks and energy filled set, it’s hardly surprising the comedy tent was filled with enough young girls to rival a One Direction concert.

It’s hard to believe this wry and witty comedian started out as a corporate lawyer, although then again it’s not.

Lucy Rose, Skott and Joel Dommett were among the acts to strut their stuff on Saturday afternoon at Henham Park as Latitude Festival continued.
