Sausage makers take over the whole town of Framlingham and will be sizzling sausages for you to try. Not only do you get to taste lots of sausages, there’s entertainment for all the family, free workshops and plenty of stalls to browse and activities to keep you busy all day. Framlingham is a pretty special town anyway, with its Castle (‘on the Hill’), welcoming cafés, restaurants and coffee shops and beautiful historical architecture.
Just purchase your ticket (just £6 per person or group of 4 £20. Under 3’s go free) and you will be given a Sausage Trail Map that reveals where we’ve hidden all the wonderful sausage makers. Simply present your trail map for stamping at each venue to claim your free tasting sample. Then the difficult bit – when you’ve tasted as many as you can, you have to decide which one is your favourite! Place your vote at one of the ticket points and then come along to the awards at 5.30pm, in Framlingham Castle, to find out who has won.
The three sizzling categories in this, the 8th annual Sausage Festival in Framlingham are Best Classic Pork; Best Pork Free and Best Gluten Free. They are all as scrumptious as each other and many competing sausages in Pork Free and Classic Pork are also deliciously Gluten Free.
The Great Framlingham Sausage Festival is dog friendly (we even have our sausage dog mascot – Teddie the dachshund), wheelchair friendly and, just in case, plenty to do under-cover if the weather decides to be British. As a Fringe event of the famous Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival, it goes without saying that there is a plentiful offering of great local food and drink just in case those sausages don’t fill you up.
