I don’t brie-lieve it, Wanstead choir make final five in Cheese competition

There was nothing grating about a Wanstead choir’s entry to find an anthem for Cheddar cheese.

The Upbeat Choir have been chosen by the British Cheese Board to be in the final five entries which will be decided by a public vote.

Nigel White, from British Cheese Board, said: “Britain may produce over 700 named cheeses, but this competition has proven beyond doubt that Cheddar is by far and away the nation’s favourite.”

Other entries included Morris dancers with accordions and a techno version of God Save our Cheese.

Voting is now open at www.britishcheese.com and will close on August 4.
