The Cheese Festival
Thank you to everyone who came to the Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival! Our hugely popular annual event bringing visitors into the town from across the UK and raising much-needed funds for local charities.
Over the weekend, alongside hundreds of stalls selling cheeses, food, drink, jewellery and crafts from across Dorset and the local area, visitors enjoyed fantastic cookery demonstrations in the festivals' Mousetrap Theatre from some of the finest chefs and food producers in Dorset, including celebrity chef Lesley Walters, Chococo and James Golding of The Pig Group. Revellers also happily sampled the vast array of local ciders and real ales, with all profits going to local charities and groups, whilst listening to a wide selection of fantastic live music.
We'll look forward to seeing everyone again on the 14th and 15th September 2019 - which will be the 20th anniversary of the festival!
