An evening of Cheese and Wine with Alex James - Bassist of iconic British band ' Blur ' and award-winning cheese maker.

Held within the magical medieval Crypt of Ely Place, Alex James covers his runaway success with Blur, 

and his transformation to becoming one of the Nation’s top cheesemakers after purchasing a farmhouse in the

cotswolds, and renovating it into a thriving cheese farm. 

We will then taste a selection of his most popular cheeses, matched with outstanding wines from Trinity Hill, NZ.

Tickets include: Welcome glass of Champagne, speech by Alex James, Cheese and Wine tasting and group / table photo opportunity.
