A feast for all the family at Cheese Show

Story posted on

Glorious food, drink, entertainment and of course plenty of cheese awaits you at this year’s Frome Agricultural & Cheese Show on Saturday 14th September at the West Woodlands Showground. 

Organisers say, “It’s set to be a feast for all the senses with a huge food hall, fantastic arena attractions, shopping galore, music stage and astounding cheese pavilion 

“Enjoy all the trimmings of a traditional country show with rural competitions in everything from vegetable growing and crochet, to livestock showing and show jumping. 

“Find out what goes on down at the farm with the big machinery demos, the hilarious Sheep Show and the Discovery Zone where you’ll find Tractor Ted and the Animal Nursery with lots of furry friends ready to meet you!

“Making a very special guest appearance on the stage this year will be the fantastic Mr Bloom from CBeebies so get ready for talking vegetables and sing-a-longs. 

“Our Cheese Pavilion is going to be a hive of activity this year, not only showcasing the entries from the Global Cheese Awards, there are also trade stands, the cheese bar and our cookery theatre stage. We’ll be joined on stage by the lovely Jean Christophe Novelli and local chef Katy Harris, as well as having cheese making demos, our cheese auction and a cookery competition from Frome College.

“Our trade stands areas are stacked to the rafters with over 300 traders from local produce, scrummy cakes, to beautiful homemade goods with demonstration stands a plenty. There really is something for everyone! 

Tickets are available from the show office, Rodden Road, Frome, Somerset BA112AH; over the phone on the ticket hotline – 01373 455420 or online via the website www. frome-cheeseshow.co.uk

Message from new Frome Show Chairman

As the summer evenings draw in and we look ahead to autumn’s arrival, it is not just the seasons that have changed. 

So to, has the management of Frome Agricultural and Cheese Show. 

“This year’s show, which takes place Saturday 14th September, is the first for David Millard as Show President, the first for Hannah George as Show Organiser and the first for me in  my new role as Show Chairman. Formerly acting as Vice-Chairman, and Chairman of the Fodder & Grain section before that.  

“I have been assisting with Frome Show for an enjoyable 45 years, following in the footsteps of five generations of the Cary family before me. I am honoured to be leading the proceedings of an event that consistently offers a wonderful day out for all the family. From musical performances, to funfair rides, from livestock and horse showing to cooking lessons with Jean-Christophe Novelli, there is something for everyone throughout the course of the day.

“As a grandfather of five myself I appreciate that days out can be costly, which is why we strive to keep pricing affordable. When booked in advance, a family ticket (covering 2 adults and 3 children) will cost you £33 and grants access to the full day of programming, including the many free activities that we have put in place such as laser clay shooting, performances from Mr Bloom of CBeebies fame, Tractor Ted and the chance to meet a pair of real life dinosaurs (or at least, very realistic walking, talking replicas!). We are also running a free shuttle bus between Frome town and the show ground throughout the day.

“Whether you are Somerset born and bred like me, or a recently relocated resident, Frome Agricultural and Cheese Show is a great way to experience and celebrate everything that the local area has to offer. I am pleased to confirm that as opposed to previous years, we will have cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry (amongst other live stock) present at this year’s show. There is a wide range of impressive agricultural machinery to observe and inspire. Keeping the community in mind, I am pleased to see many local businesses joining in with the extensive Trade Stand offerings, providing local food and drink, crafts and gifts.”

Paul Cary
