Thousands of visitors flocked to Sudbury for the town’s food and drink festival with the organisers hailing the event as a “great success”.

Food and drink from across the world tantalised people’s tastebuds as they savoured culinary delights from more than 60 producers at the Taste of Sudbury today.

Market Hill was packed with people, with visitors also welcome inside St Peter’s Church and outside the Town Hall.

Organiser Jane Hatton, 47, from Sudbury Town Team, said the festival was as good as last year’s “if not better”.

“It’s gone really well; it’s been at least as busy as previous years if not busier,” she said.

“There’s been cooking demonstrations on stage and a champagne bar. There’s been a great atmosphere, music near the Town Hall, with another bar down near the stage.

“From people’s feedback they have visited from all over the place – from Suffolk and Essex but even people from abroad as well.”
