Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival
Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival attracts thousands, who come for the live music, craft stalls and tours of Sturminster Farm Creamery, as well as to witness the cheese-making process. When you've had your fill of dairy there's also meat, beers, ciders and more.
The dairy farms nestled in the Dorset countryside surrounding the village of Sturminster Newton are indispensable to the making of Sturminster Farm Cheddar. It's this cheddar, along with a host of other Dorset and West Country craft cheeses, that has provided the impetus for the annual festival since 1999. The creamery's cheeses have won medals at all the major shows, from the British Cheese Awards to the London Cheese Competition.
