Join the Frivolities at Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival and Fringe

Written by Katherine Pickles and edited by Alison Jane Reid 

One of the many glorious towns hugging the Great British coastline is Aldeburgh, in Suffolk. Unlike many seaside towns which have become faded glories, Aldeburgh has cleverly embraced the 21st century whilst retaining its traditional, British charm. With an enviable reputation for artisan high quality food, Aldeburgh is perfectly placed in foodie capital Suffolk. It will be home to the fabulous Food and Drink Festival and Fringe from 27th September until 9th October this year and we urge you all to take part and indulge in some exquisite local food style delicacies.

Aldeburgh is a truly traditional British seaside town with a timeless, never ending appeal and is a proud owner of a Blue Flag shingle beach, the quintessential, kaleidoscopic beach huts and the finest fish and chips in the land. The delightfully chic town is perfect for strolling by the River Alde, enjoying nature trails along the spectacular coastline, climbing the magnificent Norman Framlingham Castle and enjoying the multitude of fine, gourmet restaurants.

Boasting an incredible array of history and heritage, Aldeburgh and its neighbouring delightful villages including Snape, Orford and Thorpeness all feature countless independent bookshops and galleries. Along with farm shops, stocking wonderful local produce, and charming tearooms, perfect for quirky gifts and cream teas, Aldeburgh is the true quintessence of Best of British.

The magnificent sea facing White Lion and Brudenell hotels are joining the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival this year, and will be hosts to some fabulous, mouth-watering events. A gourmet wine dinner takes place in both hotels with top sommeliers to guide you through deliciously tasting grape varieties. The White Lion will welcome local fish producers and the head brewer from Adnams ales for a night of local fish and Suffolk brewed beer on 3rd October. To add to all the excitement, there will even be an eccentric Mad Hatter themed afternoon tea is happening on 11th  October, along with a mini-meringue workshop to tingle your taste buds! Plus, a ‘progressive supper’ with the idea that you try each different gourmet course at a different restaurant in Aldeburgh, what fun!
