If you like your festivals cheesy – no, I’m not referring to the likes of Jedward, Honey G, et al appearing on the same stage. I literally mean the edible, variety. In​ ​the​ ​run​ ​up​ ​to​ ​Christmas,​ ​Greenwich​ ​events​ ​space​ ​Studio​ ​338​ ​will​ ​host​ ​a​ ​huge​ ​cheese festival​ ​across​ ​three​ ​arenas​ ​at​ ​the​ ​venue.

This event is fully immersive, visitors will​ ​be invited​ to ​sample​ ​artisan​ ​cheeses from across Europe​ ​as they​ ​walk​ ​around​ ​the​ ​cheese​ ​board​. Ticket holders can gorge on unlimited FREE cheese paired with biscuits and mulled wine.

The organisers have opted for ‘supersize’: a large baked Camembert will take centre stage, served by man-sized mice, while a double height fireplace will provide a cosy backdrop.

One would assume that a cheese festival would be the last place a vegan would feel welcome, fortunately, there will be a selection of vegan-friendly alternatives for those not about that dairy life.

Once guests have had their fill, they can burn off cheese-fuelled calories, dancing to cheesy anthems of course, after the cheese board transforms into a dance floor.

True turophiles and those with a penchant for cheesy tunes will love this festival. Tickets are priced from £30 and include unlimited​ ​FREE​ ​cheese,​ ​biscuits​ ​and​ ​mulled​ ​wine.​ ​

The​ ​Giant​ ​Cheese​ ​Board – Saturday​ ​16th ​ ​December​ 3 pm​ ​–​ ​3 am.  For tickets and further information please visit: or
