A traditional Suffolk pub – recently highlighted as a “hidden gem” by the Campaign for Real Ale – is getting ready for its annual beer and music festival.

The King’s Head in Laxfield – also known as the Low House – is holding the three day event from tomorrow until Sunday.

Now in its sixth year the festival features the full range of Adnams beers together with more than 25 other real ales from breweries across East Anglia.

This year the pub will also be launching a new Adnams beer, called Fat Sprat, which is supporting the Marine Conservation Society’s work to preserve dwindling fish stocks. Away from the ales and ciders, there is a full programme of music from local bands including Vix and The Kiks, Crossfire, Clarence King and The Regents, The Broadside Boys and Myopia.

Tomorrow will see the pub’s first ever sausage festival, while there will be a hog roast on Saturday and barbecue on Sunday afternoon. All the food is sourced from local producers.
