Stowmarket will be serving up a feast for the public with the return of its annual food and drink festival.

It takes place on Sunday July 7 alongside the Museum of East Anglian Life's CAMRA Beer & Brewing Festival.

Events include the Kitchen Theatre, which will see the best local chefs show off their skills at the John Peel Centre, along with a craft gin bar.

It will also feature live music and children's entertainment.

This year sees the Festival teaming up with other local businesses for 'Best of Suffolk' fringe events across the town throughout the following 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.
