The UK’s largest cheese fair will return for its sixth year in 2016 when the Artisan Cheese Fair takes place in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire from 30 April to 1 May.

Last year, over 8,000 cheese-lovers visited the Cheese Fair and with over 50 cheesemakers showcasing in excess of 250 different products at this year’s event, visitors will have the opportunity to taste and buy some of the UK’s rarest and most popular artisan cheeses.

30 April & 1 May 2016 (Sat-Sun May Bank Holiday Weekend) 10am – 4pm
Entry £3, children free. Cattle Market, Scalford Road. Melton Mowbray. LE13 1JY

Visitors to the Artisan Cheese Fair can sample and purchase many of the 250 popular and rare cheeses on show from 50 exhibitors including the leading names in UK artisan cheese production.

You can enjoy talks, tastings and demonstrations from industry experts including the Stilton Cheesemakers Association. Besides cheese, there will be wine, cakes, beer, chutneys, Melton Mowbray’s famous Pork Pie and more.

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 sixth 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.

The Artisan Cheese Fair celebrates the growing popularity of British cheese with exports hitting a record high last year. Figures from HMRC in 2014 showed that cheese exports rose by 8.2 per cent with around 130,000 tonnes exported.

There is coach parking available on site for up to 50 vehicles at the Cattle Market and driver offers are available on request from Matthew O’Callaghan on 07894229499 or email matthewocall@gmail.com.
