The Ipswich Biscuit Gala

The hunt for Ipswich's official biscuit!

Over the past few months individuals, friends, families, groups and colleagues have been sharing their Ipswich Biscuit recipes. Now the competition has closed, this is your chance to taste all the finalist biscuits and vote for your favourite. 

Tasting and voting will be open from 12 noon, with tea served throughout the day. The public voting will take place from 12pm-4pm. There will be written stories and ingredients which are displayed beside each biscuit recipe. A speaking guide will be open to everyone to join the tour of each biscuit where all written text will be read out. They’ll be starting at the entrance of the Council Chamber at 3.00pm. Voting will close just before the Gala at 4pm.

Then be sure not to miss the Gala itself! A special welcome will be followed by some fascinating facts about biscuits and live music. The winning Ipswich Biscuit will be announced at 5pm and the cash prize awarded. All of the Gala will be BSL interpreted.
