This year's Nantwich Show, which takes place on 26th July, is aiming to attract even more visitors than the 32,000 last year with over half a million pounds being invested. There will be an enlargement of the Cheese Pavilion, for which the show has an international reputation, with some 2,000 cheeses from around the world being exhibited and judged.
