Thousands of people will be descending on one of the biggest events of the year when Nantwich Show takes place next week.

And organisers will be relieved to see the weather is set fair for the next 10 days according to latest forecasts.

The show, at Dorfold Park off the A534, attracts tens of thousands of people offering a wide array of entertainment, activities, exhibitions, stalls and of course the International Cheese Awards – the world’s largest cheese show!

There are more than 5,000 entries to this year’s cheese show, a world record, housed in one of the biggest marquees in the world.

And a series of celebrity chefs will be performing live cooking demonstrations during the day inside the cheese marquee.

These include James Martin (pictured), Sean Wilson, Will Holland and Jonathan Harrison.
