South West Cheese Awards

Cheddar to Goat's Cheese

Being based in the centre of Somerset’s cheese making country the Mid-Somerset Show has a strong history of featuring cheese classes, and the South West Cheese Awards were a successful addition to the Show in 2011. Since they have gone from strength to strength and now with 66 different classes covering Cheddar to Goat’s Cheese and Stilton to Brie, the awards are a fantastic opportunity to showcase the finest cheese makers in our region.

Winning Cheese Auction

Visitors will have the opportunity to buy the award winning cheeses in the cheese auction held on Show afternoon, and they will have the chance to taste and buy some of the area’s finest cheeses from the many trade stands surrounding the South West Cheese Awards.
