At last – a food festival that’ll give you an air of sophistication, rather than grilled beef and onions. Mais oui, monsieur – it’s the Cheese and Wine festival. Kicking off on October 11, this three-day event will be held at the Southbank Centre from 11am until 8pm (6pm on the Sunday). It’s free to get in and traders include artisan cheesemakers (no Alex James, (un)fortunately) to independent wineries and all the people that make the ideal accompaniments (breads, chutneys, cheese knives). You might even be able to snaffle a sample or two.
