The Big Night Out in Long Melford is being held on Friday, November 9, in the grounds of Melford Hall, with all proceeds going directly to charity.

Event organiser Andrew Hagger has commissioned a ‘Big Night Stout’ from Nethergate Brewery in Long Melford to commemorate the milestone anniversary of the popular event.

The winter ale was launched to great acclaim at Wetherspoon’s Grove and Allen pub in Sudbury last week.

Jamie Towells, of Jamie’s Meat Inn in Sudbury, has also used the beer in the making of some commemorative sausages called ‘Big Night Out Bangers’ to be enjoyed on the barbecue on the night.

A bonfire toffee ice cream will also be on sale on the night courtesy of Jane Hedley of Hedley’s at Lavenham.

Tickets for the event are £6 in advance and £8 on the gate.
