London Cheese Month

We're transforming the capital into a city of cheese, with a month of cheese tastings, talks and events, culminating in our three-day festival at the end of May.

Our aim is to focus the public's attention on the vibrant world of British cheese, which has been rejuvenated in recent years by a new generation of artisan producers, cheesemongers & street food chefs.
