The smell of freshly sizzled bacon will be wafting from St. Peter’s Church when they hold the popular Bacon Buttie Festival.
The festival, which is back for the third year running, will have many varieties of Britain’s favourite sandwich.
Returning for a second year is the unexpectedly favourite - the Elvis buttie - a bacon sandwich with crispy bacon rashers laid on top of peanut butter and topped with miniature marshmallows.
Also on the menu is the more conventional mushroom double cheese and, of course, it wouldn’t be the Bacon Buttie Festival without the famous Churchwarden’s Chilli Challenge - but only the brave need apply.
Paul Roberts is organiser of the 2014 Bacon Buttie Festival. He said; “There’s something about a bacon sandwich that almost everybody understands. Endlessly tasty and satisfying, but at the same time great fun to prepare and eat.”

He continued; “If it’s just a plain bacon sandwich you want, absolutely no problem. If you prefer something a little more adventurous, then we have butties for every palate and flavour influences from the world over.”
Of course, there will be the usual fun and games including quoits, a book stall, cake stall and the famous human fruit machine will be back. Other stalls and attractions will be at the Bacon Buttie Festival, so there’s something for everyone.
