A much-loved food and drink festival is undergoing a name change after years of success. 

The Taste of Sudbury Food & Drink Festival was originally held in the market town before moving to neighbouring village Long Melford. 

Over the years the festival has grown substantially and now showcases over 70 producers from across the county as well as a number of local chefs and a large kitchen theatre. 

From 2024 the festival will be called the Taste of East Anglia. 

Justine Paul, one of the directors of the Taste of East Anglia, said: "Supporting local producers and celebrating local food and drink has been the core focus and theme of the festival for several years.

"The event has become a significant date in the diary for many of the best producers from across the region, and this, coupled with the fact that our visitors are now travelling from as far as Cambridgeshire, London, Norfolk and Essex, meant that it was time to change the name in order to reflect the growth of the festival.

"Renaming the festival the Taste of East Anglia was a bit of a lightbulb moment and we think it fits the bill perfectly."
