Live music, cold cider and hot sausage - Northampton's annual sausage and cider festival is back in 2020.

Street food stalls selling; a variety of sausage - from smoked long dogs to Polish kielbasa and Bratwurst; griddled cheese toasties from the Good Times Cafe; and new for 2020, Birmingham's bun meisters The Patty Freaks will be joining the party with their amazing burgers (see picture below).
