Nantwich Show 2019
July 2019 saw Roberts Bakery become one of the Main Sponsors of the Nantwich Show, which includes the International cheese and dairy awards. On the Tuesday 30th July saw the judging of over 5,000 cheese entries from 30 different countries, including for the first time Japan! The ‘Big Cheese lunch’ followed with a 3 course meal for 1,400 guests, which included some specially crafted bread rolls expertly produced by Paul Graves.
As part of our sponsorship, along with our giant #NEXT GEN inflatable sampling our range of products, the main double door entrance to the huge cheese marquee became a massive Roberts bloomer loaf to walk through and became a fun talking point!
The main Show day of Wednesday 31st July sadly got cancelled due to the weather, however the huge cheese marquee with celebrity chefs still opened for free to the public. We were able to relocate our Roberts stand next to the Chefs demonstration area and enjoyed a very busy day engaging with a packed marquee of visitors coming out in support of the Show. We actually ended up selling out of all product by 2.30pm!
We had many engaging chats with the community about all things Roberts Bakery and the Mayor of Nantwich stopped by for some bread and a picture. Celebrity chef James Martin called by for some bread to use for one of his cooking demonstrations and was pleased to take home some Roberts bread! A great success despite the main Show being cancelled and we are already in talks about plans for 2020!
