Frome Cheese Show

fromecheeseEvery second Saturday in September Frome residents — and those from further afield —have a very special agricultural and cheese show to enjoy. The fixture never fails to create a buzz — offering myriad attractions, classes, tradestands and opportunities for a fantastic day out for friends, families and business people.

What makes the show particularly special, though, is its history. For more than a century and a half, local people have been exhibiting their home-made cheese at the Frome Cheese Show. Almost every year since its inception (apart from the war years) the show has expanded, moved, changed and adapted itself to the changing needs of its audience and valued customers.

For many years, the Cheese Show carried such clout that all schools and factories in the town would shut their doors for Wednesday show day. This would always be followed by Frome Carnival on the Saturday, giving the town a fantastically festive week.

The cheese section has now even gone Global, with the Global Cheese Awards trade show taking place on the Thursday prior to the Saturday show and showcasing  myriad varieties of cheese from all over the world. Those 19th century Somerset cheesemakers would be amazed.
