Here at The Fine Cheese Co. we are busy getting ready for our very own British Cheese Festival.
We’d love all of our customers from in and around Bath to pop along for the day and meet some of the fabulous cheese-makers that we support.
There will be over 20 producers, which means a huge amount of cheese to try and to buy!
The Fine Cheese Co. staff will also be on hand to help out and talk you through some of your favourite cheeses.
As proud supporters of British artisan cheese, we urge other cheese-lovers to meet some of the characters behind Britain’s finest cheeses and learn some more about our favourites cheeses.
The big event is being hosted by the lovely people at Milsom Place in the centre of Bath on Saturday 27th October from 10am to 5pm.
