About 12,000 food lovers attended the Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival Weekend on the 24th and 25th September 2011 held at Snape Maltings in Suffolk. We were delighted to be asked to make the bunting for the event. Due to the large area involved, it was necessary to make up 300 metres of bunting to adequately decorate the large marquees that the event was held in.
The bunting was in a nautical style with a selection of mainly blue fabrics in ginghams, stripes and spots. The bunting flags were made large in keeping with the size of the marquees.

EU Bunting are able to offer a range of bunting in over 30 different plain colours. A lot of our bunting tends to be alternating colours, however in some cases single colour bunting is very effective. In circumstances such as school sports days, team building events, etc. our single colour bunting can identify separate team areas aiding event organisation. You can pick the colours you wish from either our stock products such as red bunting , yellow bunting and so on or you can use our pick your colours bunting and select your required colour. Our bunting flags are made from woven polycotton fabric and our bunting tape is 100% cotton. This has the advantage over pvc bunting and plastic bunting which tends to be very noisy, especially in coastal settings and breezy conditions.

The wedding season is getting into full swing and we were delighted to get these photos of our bunting at a recent wedding a few weeks ago. The wedding reception was held in a marquee and as you can see, it was beautifully decorated. The bespoke bunting in this marquee was our pick your colours two ply fabric bunting. There were two different sets of 3 colour bunting made up in custom lengths to fit the venue requirements. The pennant size was also made extra long to order with the flags being approx. 1 foot long (30 cm) which gives a very pleasing effect. The 2 ply fabric bunting has pennants which have two thicknesses of fabric sewn together, the flags are then turned inside out and ironed. Although making this bunting takes over twice the material and about three times the work to make compared to the equivalent 1 ply bunting, it has the advantage of having a more solid colour, as light doesn't travel through the pennant as much as the 1 ply bunt
