Events and Shows

Our Events and Shows team travel across the country attending largely agricultural and horticultural events to showcase what we do at Neal’s Yard Dairy. Our aim is to promote the work that we do in selecting and maturing cheeses and to advertise the growing community of farmhouse cheesemakers across the UK and Ireland. Customers have the chance to see cheeses in their whole forms, taste them and buy them. For these events, we make sure that we select the best batches of cheeses available to us. This means that we will have a different selection of cheeses at every event, based on what tastes best that week and what cheeses are in season. We try to include a variety of milk types, rennet types and prices.  Customers can buy from us but we can also advise them on where they can find our cheeses locally or how to order cheese on our online cheese shop. As a company, we support cheesemakers across the UK and Ireland so we want to make sure that we reach customers from all over the country too.

Our upcoming events are:

Dulwich College Christmas Fair
Sunday 27th November

For the third year running we will be selling our cheese at the Christmas Fair organised by the Friends of Dulwich College. This event is the perfect time to be thinking ahead about your Christmas cheese, whether for parties or to enjoy on Christmas day. You can come along and have a taste of some of our Christmas classics, get advice on designing your cheeseboard and place your orders online with us so that they will be delivered to your door or available for collection in one of our shops. You can also buy cheese to take away on the day.

Borough Evening of Cheese
Wednesday 14th December

We are delighted to be returning to the Borough Evening of Cheese. Home to one of our shops, Borough Market is an important place for us and we are proud to be part of the thriving cheese community there. On the evening we will be joining our fellow traders in celebrating the best in cheese from around the world. Neal’s Yard Dairy will be showcasing farmhouse British cheeses and will be selling them to you just in time for your Christmas cheeseboards. Come and talk to us about the work that we do, taste some cheeses and get advice on how to store your cheese so that it will be at its best on Christmas day.

Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market
Saturday 3rd- Tuesday 20th December

The Winchester Christmas market is one of the largest events in our calendar and is a market that we really enjoy working at. Based on a traditional German Christmas market, it is filled with wooden chalets positioned with the backdrop of Winchester Cathedral. It is great place to get into the festive mood with a glass of mulled wine, a visit to the open air ice rink and of course, the chance to buy your Christmas cheese. The market is full of British craftspeople selling their handmade items and we will be representing British farmhouse cheesemakers. We will have a selection of cheeses available to taste and buy that will have been selected with your cheeseboards in mind. Our selection will vary over the two and a half weeks of the market so make sure that you keep coming by to try our new stock.
