Sausage makers took over the whole town of Framlingham and sizzled sausages for you. Not only did you get to taste lots of sausages, we put on entertainment for all the family, free workshops, plenty of stalls to browse (you nearly emptied the town of delicious chocolate brownies!) and activities to keep you busy all day. Dozens of you seemed drawn to the wine tasting workshops by Love a Taste for some reason - we don't blame you :-) . You also discovered Framlingham, many of you making a weekend of it and enjoying our regular Saturday market and resident independant shops, great choice of cafes and restaurants and beautiful architecture and surrounding countryside.
Best Classic Pork Sausage was created by Huttons of Earl Soham. They entered with their popular recipe that was created many years ago and loved by regular customers.
Close Runner-Up in Classic Pork was Hall Farm Butchers in Framlingham. Once again, a delicious brand new recipe carefully created especially for the Sausage Festival.
Best New Taste Senstation was won by newcomers to the Festival, Sutton Hoo Chicken with their Cumberland flavoured chicken sausage.
Runner-up in New Taste Senstation was Powters Sausages.
And the Best Venue, as voted by you, was the Crown Hotel
Runner-up in the Venue competition was The Railway Inn.
Well done to all our sausage producers and to all our venues for putting on such a brilliant show. Delicious and very enjoyable.
The two sizzling categories in this, the 8th annual Sausage Festival in Framlingham were Best Classic Pork and Best New Taste Sensation. They are all as scrumptious as each other and many competing sausages in both categories were 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.
