The Awards continue to flourish by bringing together Harbutt’s tremendous network of producers and retailers with the Bath & West’s expertise in organising successful competitive Show events, attracting cheese makers from across the UK and Ireland.

The British Cheese Awards is one of the premier exhibitions and competitions for cheese producers in the UK. Its focus is cheeses produced in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales with awards across a number of categories culminating in the Supreme Champion.

The British Cheese Awards was absent from the calendar in 2020 and 2021 but was included at our Dairy Show in 2022 and we were delighted with the response and support from the cheese making industry.

With this in mind, the Royal Bath & West of England Society reviewed how best to promote the British Cheese Awards in the future. Given that it is such a prestigious event, it is planned to stage a new 3-day event food event on 22-24 March 2024 with the British Cheese Awards at its heart. Judging will take place on the first day, with the event opening to the public for the second and third days with trade-stands selling cheese and other food and drink items.

We are very excited about the new event which will also be the home of the British Cheese Awards which will continue to showcase and promote the wide diversity of cheeses produced in the UK and Ireland.

So please make a note in your diary to join us next March.

Thank you to all the cheesemakers and dairy producers who supported the 2022 British Cheese Awards which took place in October 2022, followed by the Awards dinner later in the evening. It was a very successful year with over 500 entries. Congratulations to all the medal and award winners.

A full list can be found on the Results tab. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the British Cheese Awards next year.
