The British love cheese … from the heritage farmhouse cheddars, our geographically protected Stilton to the soft delicate flavours of a Somerset Brie, the British Isles is home to a vast range of artisan cheeses and regional flavours.
In its fifth year the Artisan Cheese Fair is now the largest dedicated festival of cheese in the UK. Held undercover within the halls of Melton Mowbray’s heritage Cattle Market, the fair showcases cheese makers from all over the British Isles.
At the Fair you have the opportunity to taste some of the UK’s rarest cheeses and find the hidden gems you never knew existed. You can also learn about cheese in the daily programme of talks, demonstrations and tastings given by industry experts as well as enjoy other local produce including ales, wines, chutneys and of course Melton Mowbray’s famous Pork Pie.
