This year has seen the Festival team up with other local businesses for 'Best of Suffolk' fringe events which will take place this week, such as a real ale showcase at the Gladstone Arms in Combs Ford from July 8-14, and special menu at The Mill Bar & Grill in Milton Road South from July 5-14.

Event organiser, David Marsh, said: "It was brilliant that we had nice weather which is the most important thing.

"It was great to see that most of the stalls sold out. We were next to a sausage stall who sold out by 1.30pm and just went to have a wonder around because they didn't have any more to sell."
