133rd Frome Cheese Show - Event Review

The highlight of the show was not The Mangledwurzels, but celebrity chef Martin Blunos who created what the organisers hoped to be the World's Most Expensive Cheese Sandwich (priced at a mere £110.59).

The BBC were there to capture the event - and also managed to capture Jethro Tool chatting to other cheesophiles about the sandwich. The full news item included a clip of the band performing Shepton Sheep - and was broadcast every hour from early Sunday evening until something more interesting happened late on the Monday morning! The edited version remains on the BBC website.

For the record, The Mangledwurzels had a great day attracting huge crowds to watch both sets - and are looking forward to 2011!
