Flavours Food and Drink Festival will be heading to Henham Park again this weekend.

The organisers of a food and drink festival have promised an entertaining day out for the whole family.

Flavours of Summer 2014 food & drink festival, takes place in the old walled garden of Henham Park, near Southwold, on June 7-8.

Melissa Purnell, organiser of the popular event, said: “We have so many talented chefs and food producers across this region, and we value the opportunity to showcase what is great about East Anglian foods and cookery.

“Whatever your tastes, there will be something to capture your imagination.

“Next door, there’s a cookery theatre aimed at a younger audience, where many of the same chefs will be working with young cooks.”

The main Anglia Factors cookery theatre has a line up of chefs from across the region, demonstrating their skills in cooking and preparing a wide variety of locally-sourced ingredients.

There is also the little cookies cookery den, which aims to inspire young chefs, as well as an international street food area.

Mrs Purnell added: “Young people from the Chef Academy team at the Halesworth-based North Suffolk Skills Academy will be showing how to cook, eat fresh foods and stay healthy.

“It’s an important message.”

Outside, there will be music from folk band the Broadside Boys, along with big band and swing performer Gary Winter, and blues pop and reggae duo the Dangerous Brothers.

New to this year’s festival is an antique and collectors, vintage and retro area, which organisers believe will be an added attraction for visitors.
