The show which took place on Wednesday July 26 saw cheese lovers from around the world gather together. And with categories as diverse as 'Cheese for children', 'Vegetarian cheese', and 'Cheese with health benefits' it's no wonder it attracts such a crowd each year!
It's the largest cheese show in the world attracting around 32,000 visitors, so from humble origins 111 years ago as a small cheese show within the historical market town of Nantwich, it's obviously had to move to a much larger venue – and is now hosted at Dorfold Hall Park.

BBC Radio Stoke's Anisha Shah was there to check it out... and whilst indulging in some cheese tasting she chatted to a few attending celebrities; including Emmerdale's Nicola Wheeler who judged the 'Cheese Lover's Trophy' and local expert Alan Salt, known as 'the cheese man'.
