The event is a twist on a traditional cheese market and will showcase some of the world's best cheese vendors and will include more than 140 different types of artisan cheese, oozing mozzarella sticks, melting raclette, halloumi fries and poutine, which is a Canadian dish of chips, cheese and gravy.

There will also be street food stalls, live cooking demonstrations and live music too.

There will be the chance to meet and greet Wallace & Gromit, an activity area, film screenings, model making with Aardman Animations and life sized vehicles.
