All concerts start at 7.30pm and take place in the parish church of St Peter and St Paul in the centre of the village. There are only a few seats reserved for financial supports of the festival, otherwise places are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Because of the nature of the building there are a few seats with limited views although the intimate space allows excellent acoustic experience for all.
Adjacent to the church is the Swan Inn which provides pre-concert dinners and serves a wide range of fantastic food for all tastes. Fine dining pre-concert is available at the Michelin-listed Fox & Goose Inn in the Elizabethan Guildhall, adjacent to the Church. Limited parking is available within walking distance of the parish church and parking stewards will be available to provide directions.
Further parking information can be found here.
Located practically on the Suffolk/Norfolk county border, Fressingfield is one of Suffolk’s largest parishes. It is 12 miles east of the town of Diss (which is on the main train line from London to Norwich), close to the A140 and just 40 minutes drive from the coast at Southwold and from Norwich. In addition to St Peter and St Paul, there are also Baptist and Methodist churches in the village. (Click on map below to enlarge)
In the centre is a small village store, a pottery, and a vineyard producing the award-winning Oak Hill wines. There are several excellent bed and breakfast and holiday homes available in or close to the village.
