Beccles’ first food and drink festival is fast approaching and organisers are encouraging people to come and support the event which aims to highlight the food champions of the town and surrounding area.
More than 40 stalls showcasing a variety of locally produced food and drink, including ice cream, cheese, bread, jams and cider will be set up around the town for people to try tasters and buy products.
A cake competition will also be held and is open to anyone who thinks they can create a ‘Beccles cake’ which best represents the town. People are asked to bring two cakes - one for the judges to try and one for photographs - a recipe card and method for baking the cake to St Michael’s Church by 12pm.
The winner will have their cake produced by Twyfords Cafe for a year.
“It’s a family day and one all generations can enjoy,” said Lucy Coote, one of the festival organisers. “We are really lucky to have so many amazing food producers and this day is about championing them.”
