Families from across the country descended on a Suffolk market town to celebrate all that’s brilliant about the British banger.
More than 1,000 people, from Preston to Norwich, took part in the sizzling fun when the Framlingham Sausage Festival cooked up a treat on Saturday.
Participants followed a trail sampling sausages from 12 local producers while rides in luxury limos, cooking demonstrations, an escapologist, a magician, music, games and competitions added to the fun.
Jenny Stockman, of the Framlingham Business Association, said this year’s “bigger” food festival raised the profile of Framlingham.
“We are not just a little market town anymore,” she said.

She said the event attracted national publicity and people from all over the country took part.
“It was brilliant. The town was flooded with people all enjoying locally-sourced and locally-produced sausages, which was important to show that local food is good-quality and should not just be treated as a luxury but as an everyday choice.” Hall Farm Butchers in Framlingham were crowned Sausage Champion 2013.
