Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival 2010

The Best Garden Party in the West

That’s how the Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival has been described by visitors and exhibitors. 

“A Great day out”
“Will see you next year”
“Lovely atmosphere”

A celebration of Cheese, Food and Crafts established for over 15 years now and based on a tradition of Cheese making in the town, stretching back for over 100 years. The Cheese Festival is a great day out in picturesque “Hardy” country in the heart of the Blackmore Vale. Thomas Hardy once lived in a house adjoining the site.

Come and sample the wares from some 70 food and Cheese stalls, over 80 craft exhibitors. Enjoy some of the 25 plus beers in the “real ale” tent, cider from local cider makers, a wine bar, live music and children’s entertainment.   In the Mousetrap theatre, cookery and Cheese making demonstrations.
In short something to interest and entertain everyone.

From the beginning our ethos has been that, wherever possible, the cheese and food has to be produced in the south and west by the exhibitor. This means that you could well be talking to the person who made it.

Ample  parking on site and a free Park & Ride service from the north of the town.
