Local butchers compete for best sausage award at Camp Hill's summer sausage and beer festival.

Butchers from around North Yorkshire will be competing for the ultimate accolade of ‘Best Sausage’ as voted for by the public at the Camp Hill Sausage and Beer Festival.

Following the success of last year’s competition at the Camp Hill Estate near Bedale, the event will be bigger and even better with more butchers taking part and more beers to enjoy.

Starting at noon, visitors will be able to sample a variety of the finest sausages from around 20 local butchers and vote for their favourite. A selection of locally produced beers will also be available to buy and enjoy throughout the day including the produce of Northallerton Brewery and Wensleydale Brewery.

With lots of activities, including sausage making and a ‘Speediest Link’ challenge, visitors can also explore The Camp Hill Estate and have fun on the adventure playground, children’s assault course and watch a trials bike demonstration. There will also be Rosie’s Vintage Cream Teas, a Bucking Pig to ride on, a bouncy castle, face painting and live music throughout the day.

Last year’s winners, Cockburn’s of Bedale, who won the Heck Cup for the Best Sausage competition said: “It was fantastic getting so much positive feedback from the public last year so we’re looking forward to defending our title – we don’t want to be handing over the cup to anyone else!”
