C&G 25th Anniversary Photo History Project


It’s the 25th anniversary of the Cheese and Grain this year and to celebrate, there will be two weeks of events organised to showcase everything that takes place at the venue.

Steve Macarthur, Director of the Cheese and Grain said: “As well as being a music venue, the Cheese and Grain is Frome’s community centre, working closely with the NHS, with local school and colleges, local voluntary and youth organisations and supporting refugees. The project has come a long way from when volunteers erected the first stage from scaffolding poles and table tennis tops and borrowed a PA from a well-wisher! With help from Frome Town Council, the Trustees, and our staff, we look forward to its continuing remarkable success.”

To send in photos of the Cheese and Grain, please submit here:
 Submit your Cheese & Grain pics

If you are unable to send in digitally, Frome Town Hall will accept your physical photos and upload them for you so they can be put forward for the exhibition. The project is about everybody’s memories of the Cheese and Grain, this isn’t for professional photographers, it’s about images that really capture those personal experiences over the years.

Cllr Sara Butler said: “The Cheese and Grain has seen so many fantastic acts perform including of course Sir Paul McCartney last year, and the intimate space means the audience always has such a great experience so we’re really looking forward to seeing people’s photos and hearing the stories behind them!”.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 7th August at 9am, and everyone sending photos in will be entered into a raffle with two lucky people drawn at random, winning a ticket to Jo Whiley’s 90’s Anthems show on September 22nd.
