The London Cheese Project: a new festival for cheese lovers

by Great British Chefs 24 April 2017

Like cheese? Then you’ll love this free festival taking place on 6 and 7 May at Camden Market. Read more about what’s on over the two days.


Calling all cheese lovers! If you’re wondering what to do on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May, get down to North Yard in Camden Market where the first ever London Cheese Project is taking place. The free festival brings together urban cheesemakers, cheesemongers and street food traders with a passion for all things melted.

London is at the vanguard of the renaissance in British cheesemaking, with producers operating under railway arches, new-wave cheesemongers reinventing the traditional cheese shop and converted ice cream trucks serving up gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. The London Cheese Project aims to brings all these things together in one place.

Visitors will be able to talk to the cheesemakers in person, buy plenty of varieties to take home and taste their way through various cheese-centric street food delicacies. The Culture Club Marquee will host a series of talks from expert Patrick McGuigan on everything from matching beer and cheese to an introduction to the new-wave cheeses of the capital (more information here).

‘British cheese has undergone a revolution in recent years and we are now making cheeses that can match anything found on the Continent,’ says Patrick. ‘It’s a hugely exciting time with a new generation pushing the boundaries of cheese in much the same way microbreweries and craft ale pubs have transformed British beer. London is at the forefront of this new wave and we want to capture and convey the dynamism, exuberance and talents of the city’s cheese scene.’
