One of Suffolk's most popular food and drinks festivals has announced its return to Long Melford this year - but with a new look.

The annual Taste of Sudbury Festival has been rebranded for 2024 to The Taste of East Anglia Food and Drink Festival and looks to be returning to Kentwell Hall even bigger and better than ever.

More than 70 artisan and local stalls will be at the event, including a selection of bars with local craft ales, cocktails and wines, a line-up of street food vendors and a kitchen theatre in which local chefs and restaurants put on cookery demonstrations.

Peck Fried Chicken is confirmed as one of the street food vendors, a company that has exploded in popularity since an amazing review in a viral TikTok video last October.

John Jackaman from ICE Restaurant in Bury St Edmunds and The Old Felixstowe Brewery Co are also confirmed for the event.

It isn't all food and drink - ticketholders at the festival can also browse stalls selling handmade crafts and plants and visit the children’s tent which will have free activities going on all day.

The tickets cost £6 for all-day entry on Saturday, June 15 and dogs on leads are welcome.
