Well I don’t know what to be more excited about, an event or an event with cheese. Lucy and I got to attend the Nantwich Show as part of the ICA press team and we had a great time.
Set in the beautiful South Cheshire countryside, just one mile from Nantwich Town Centre at the historic stately home Dorfold Hall. The Nantwich Show is home to the International Cheese and Dairy Awards. Run over two days, the first is trade day where the judging takes place and the awards are announced and day two is the main day for visitors to the show.
You can view the results below.
At the main show you can enter the marquee and have a taste sensation of cheeses, plus take a look at some of the winners from the day before. Lucy discovered a fair few that she loved and we were definitely in our happy place while testing all the choices out. Plus I got to see my favourite TV chef James Martin creating some masterpieces once again.
Outside of the marquee we got to explore the stands, all 450 of them. There were plenty of car manufacturers in attendance and Lucy and I fell in love with a lovely camper van on display. Plus there was an amazing lego stand with all the figures plus we got to get up close to an array of owls and birds of prey.
There was also a huge amount of activities on to entertain visitors on the day as there were ponies, a motorcycle stunt club, horses, dogs carrying out protection displays, donkey rides and meeting the Cheshire hounds too.
The Nantwich Show is situated at The Showground in Nantwich, Cheshire approximately an hour away from Manchester & Liverpool and 40 minutes from Chester by car, so it is definitely easily reached if you’re in the North West area. The weather was incredible yesterday too which made it that much better.
The only downside was trying to get home through the traffic in a ridiculously hot car, but it’s to be expected.
Have you been to the Nantwich Show? It’s a great day out for the whole family.
