We Love Cheese has fast become a popular fixture with Ealing’s foodie crowd, with hundreds flocking to W5 on its two dates last year. 

If you’ve not been before then expect exactly what the name suggests. And if you love cheese as much as we do, you need to go. There’s cheesy street food traders, special menus and cheese sellers from around the world. You’ll find a large selection of stalls where you can taste, buy and chat to the experts, plus a whole range of cheese related products from bread and charcuterie to olives and wine.

The event will also have an 'Ealing Bites' talk tent which includes a line-up of talks by producers and importers. The tent will also feature tastings hosted by The Guardian’s food critic Grace Dent and featuring our event partners Weird Beard, Park + Bridge and Heritage Cheese.

We Love Cheese is free to attend and you don't need a ticket to come along, but you will need a ticket to take part in the tasting sessions hosted by Grace Dent (tickets available to purchase on the day) The We Love Cheese Cup tasting card is available to buy in advance online, please see link below.

The We Love Cheese Cup

The only training needed to take part in the We Love Cheese Cup is a love of cheese and willingness to sample lots of different types.  Purchased in advance or on the day, you will receive a Cheese Cup tasting card, which will entitle you to taste all the cheeses entered into the competition and receive a complimentary drink from one of our bars to enjoy along with your tasting.
