A SAUSAGE and beer festival is taking place this weekend in North Yorkshire to celebrate local brewers and butchers.

The fundraising event is being run at the Camp Hill Estate near Bedale on Saturday, July 26.

From midday visitors will be able to sample a variety of sausages from up to 20 local butchers and then vote for their favourite one.

Free sausage sandwiches from HECK, a new independent sausage company will also be on offer and poeple can buy beers produced locally from breweries such as Northallerton Brewery and Wensleydale Brewery.

There will be a sausage cookery demonstration and people can explore the Camp Hill Estate, including the adventure playground and children’s assault course.

There will also be Rosie’s Vintage Cream Teas and face painting, a bouncy castle and a band to keep everyone entertained.

Renowned local butcher, Mark Cockburn of Cockburn’s of Bedale said: “We have lots of local butchers taking part in the competition and it will be a great way to showcase the wonderful produce from our area. I’m also looking forward to challenging Andrew Keeble in the sausage linking competition.”
