International Cheese Awards Press Release May 2018: Book your tickets for ICA2018!

The world’s biggest and best cheese show in the world is now less than two months away, and preparations are in full swing to make this year’s show another record-breaker. 


Tickets on sale for this year’s show


If you fancy joining us in Nantwich on Wednesday 25th July, tickets are now on sale for this year’s show. Even better, if you buy now you can take advantage of our early bird deal and snap up your places at a bargain rate: adult tickets are only £15, children’s £5, or just £35 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children). Tickets will also be available at full price on the gate. 


Remember that the price of your ticket not only gains you entry to the biggest cheese show in the world, but also to the Nantwich Show, the top one-day agricultural show in the UK, making it an unbeatable day out and the best value around. With over 450 trade stands, a Shopping and Craft Marquee, livestock displays, countryside pursuits and vintage cars, tractors and machinery, it’s no wonder that James Martin told Saturday Kitchenviewers that it’s his favourite festival!


Talking of James Martin, we’re delighted that he’ll be joining us again this year in our demo kitchen. He’ll be doing cookery demonstrations at 11am and 3pm, with tickets priced at £5. These always sell out, so don’t leave it too long to book your place! We’ll also be joined by top chefs Will Holland and Jonathan Harrison, as well as artisan cheesemaker Sean Wilson – these shows are free of charge but are first come, first served, so make sure you get there early to secure your seat. 


All advance tickets are available here
