A flavour of Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival

Suffolk's Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival celebrated its 10th year this weekend!
Basking in glorious sunshine alongside the River Alde and its reed beds, Snape Maltings was a fantastic backdrop for Suffolk's best food and drink festival.  A wonderful event enabling foodies the opportunity to sample and buy from the region's artisan food and drink producers.  The organisers thoughtfully hand you a tote bag for your purchases!
Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival is a great combination of tasting, sipping, buying, watching demonstrations, attending master classes, enjoying music and book signings in the Suffolk countryside.
