The Nantwich Show and the International Cheese Awards will be held in the beautiful parkland setting of Dorfold Hall on the edge of the historic market town of Nantwich on Wednesday 25th July. As ever, the event makes a great day out and there will be something for everyone.

The Show will encompass the largest cheese show in the world, with some 6,000 entries of every type of cheese with something to suit everyone’s tastebuds.

Celebrity chefs including James Martin, Will Holland, Jonathan Harrison and Sean Wilson will be doing live cookery demonstrations in the marquee throughout the day.

In addition there will be the usual superb celebration of agriculture in the form of displays of farm animals including cattle, horses, sheep, poultry, dogs and even pigeons.

The Countryside Pursuits Area will be packed all day with various ring displays and demonstrations.

The rapidly expanding vintage cars, tractors, commercials and machinery section offers a nostalgic look at motoring from a bygone age, and with an afternoon parade in the Main Ring this will contrast to the Bold Dog Lings stunt displays.

There’s even retail therapy on offer with 450 trade stands whether it be clothes, tractors, new cars, shopping and craft marquee and a food hall with everything that is best to taste and purchase. There will catering facilities, bars and children’s entertainment.
