One of Suffolk's biggest food and drink festivals is taking place this weekend - here's everything you need to know.

On Saturday, June 17, the Taste of Sudbury Food & Drink Festival will open its gates for a family day full of locally produced treats.

It takes place on Tourney Field outside Kentwell Hall and the Met Office weather forecast is predicting temperatures to be in the low to mid 20s.

Visitors to the festival will be able to sink their teeth into produce from over 60 stalls and there's also everything from children's pottery sessions to a vinyl-playing van.

Street food will include dishes from all over the world including poke bowls, Thai noodles, Suffolk burgers, woodfired pizza, steak and chips, hog roast, mac and cheese, New York bagels, vegan burgers and bacon butties.

To wash the food down, punters can opt for one of three bars that serve a wide range of alcohol from wine and cocktails to local craft ales.

Local distilleries and breweries will also be present to make sure you have something special to take home with you.

For those with a sweeter tooth and in need of some dessert, there will be plenty of stalls selling sugary goodies and baked items.

Dogs are welcome at the festival and pet owners can even pick up treats for their four-legged companions at some stalls.

But it's not just edible products that will be available to buy, with artisan kitchen equipment, upcycled wooden crafts, coastal-inspired jewellery and premium CBD oils and edibles among the huge range of locally made crafts on offer.

To make sure you're putting all your new produce to good use, the kitchen demonstration stage will put the spotlight on local chefs, bakers, butchers and beyond who will be giving advice throughout the day.

Tickets cost £5 for anyone aged 18 and over, while 17-year-olds and under go free.

Parking is also free of charge.

The event runs from 10am to 5pm and tickets can be bought at the festival website here.
