The Riverside will once again be hosting the main part of the festival over the weekend of 5th and 6th October with the full programme set to be announced later in the summer.

We are hosting a very special one-off event on Friday 14th June here at The Riverside when we will be screening the cult classic, The Blues Brothers, serving up soul food inspired by the film and rounding the evening off with a live set by celebrated local band, The Biscuit Brothers.

Film Feast is all about bringing communities together through a love of film, food and drink while at the same time celebrating the incredible array of local food and drink producers.

We showcase feature films, documentaries and short films from around the world all on the subject of food and drink where each evening will end with a meal replicated from one of the feature films screened earlier in the day, at a local independent restaurants in town. There will also be some very special pop-up screenings around town at local independent cafes featuring food associated with the film screened. Wherever possible all the food used will also be sourced locally.

The format is the idea of Suffolk born film consultant and researcher, Neil McGlone, and our patrons are British film director, Mike Leigh, TV personality and restaurateur, Ruth Watson, and Suffolk’s farmer and TV personality, Jimmy Doherty.
