In the run up to the 25th birthday celebrations of the Cheese and Grain, organisers have been inundated with personal memories submitted by attendees of events, gigs and parties that have taken place in this world-famous landmark. The photos submitted have been curated by a panel and turned into an exhibition. The images will be displayed at the Cheese and Grain from Friday 15th September to coincide with their community party and will then be displayed at Frome Town Hall following this, giving residents and visitors twice the chance to walk down memory lane. The exhibition images will then be archived at the Frome Museum for future generations to reference.
Following a raffle to have personal memories featured in the exhibition, local resident Jessica was the lucky recipient of two free tickets to see Jo Whiley as part of the birthday celebration. Jessica’s image was taken in the queue outside the Cheese and Grain last June, just before the pre-Glastonbury warm up gig by legend Sir Paul McCartney.
Steve Macarthur, Director of the Cheese and Grain, said: “Much of the success of the Cheese and Grain is owed to the incredible support the venue has received from within the local community over the past two and half decades, so we hope you can join us to celebrate our 25th birthday.”
Tickets are still available for the Cheese and Grain’s big community birthday party which will be held at the venue on Sunday 17th September. There will be a host of live music from bands such as The Raggedy Men; Back of the Bus; Big Dog; Bit Bigger; Frome Town Band; Frome Street Bandits; The Frukes; Jackdaws Songbirds Choir; Frome Youth Choir; alongside children’s entertainment and more. The party takes place from 3pm – 10pm with £5 entry or £12 for a family ticket. Head over to the Cheese and Grain website for tickets for the party and also details of other gigs which are also part of the 25th celebrations such as Jo Whiley, Peter Doherty and The Dualers to name a few. https://www.cheeseandgrain.com/
