Framlingham aims to repeat SausageFest success

Following last year’s “runaway success”, SausageFest is back this autumn, to treat the people of Framlingham to a day of family fun.

The festival-goers will visit local Suffolk butchers’ to taste their sausages while being chauffeured between shops in a pink limo. Visitors vote on their favourite sausage and the winner will be crowned SausageFest Champion 2014 at the end of the festival.

Ten local butchers and farm shops are to take part in this year’s event, including Jimmy’s Farm, which already boasts membership of The Independent’s top 10 sausages, as well as Hall Farm Butcher’s and EW Rewitt & Son to name a few.

Alongside the sausage tasting, the organisers have laid on street music, games and competitions and sausage-making workshops throughout the day.

Event organiser and chair of Framlingham Business Association Jenny Stockman said: “The aim of the day is for people from all over East Anglia to visit Framlingham and enjoy the excellent sausages that we produce in the region. The combination of good food and lots of fun makes it a terrific way to spend the day with friends and family and is of huge benefit to the town.”
