It’s the news you’ve been waiting for, you lucky sausages.

A whole festival dedicated to the everyone’s favourite pork protrusion is coming to London this summer — and it sounds like a banger.

That’s right, a real-life sausage fest is heading to town and although details are still thinner than a chipolata we do know it will feature sausages in all their forms, from chorizo to Cumberlands, along with music and booze.

Also promised are hay bales, bunting, beer, cider and a crowd of 2,000 people. We’re not telling porkies — check out the Facebook page and register for updates here.

If you’re interesting in filling your buns, stick August 19 in your diary now.

Perhaps consider adding London’s upcoming fried chicken, cheese and sandwich festivals while you’re at it — not to mention our own Food Month.
