CHEESE lovers were in their element at Cheese Fest, which this year had the theme of Wallace and Gromit.

The popular event is currently touring the UK across more than 15 venues and celebrates all that’s great in the world of cheese.

Those attending the Worcestershire event, held at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern on Saturday, enjoyed delicious melted delights and cheese-based cuisine, presented by the finest cheesemakers the nation has to offer.

The event included live music, live cooking demonstrations, activity areas, an artisan cheese market and street food stalls.

The visitors had the chance to experience some of the greatest cheeses in the world with melted raclette, gooey mozzarella sticks, top notch toasties, and a whole host of unique slices and cheese innovations from the UK’s best traders.

Kids could enjoy model making, life-size vehicles, film screenings of popular Wallace & Gromit movies, and a meet & greet with Wallace and Gromit themselves - who are this year celebrating 30 years of entertaining the nation.

County residents, Megan Taylor and Lottie Prior, were among the excited visitors to the event, snapping themselves with the characters, and posting on social media about their love for cheese.
