CHEESE of all shapes, sizes, colours, textures and flavours is on display in Beaconsfield today.

Hundreds of dairy produce lovers have flocked to the old town for the festival, being held for the second time this year.

Cheesemongers from across Europe have come to south Bucks for the event.

About 50 stalls and a wine and cheese tasting tent are up and running.

The town cryer and Beaconsfield Mayor Richard Keith formally opened the market at 11am.

More than 1,000 people attended the Cheese Makers’ Market in the Old Town last year, prompting Eric Charriaux and Amnon Paldi to make it a regular fixture in the town’s diary.

The pair run the La Cave à Fromage shop in South Kensington, as well as supply company Premier Cheese. Both companies are headquartered in Gregories Road, Beaconsfield.
