Can you write a Cheesy Tune?
The British Cheese Board (BCB) wants people to come up with original lyrics to the tune of God Save the Queen, Land of Hope and Glory or Jerusalem to create a “national anthem” for Cheddar Cheese.
Entries to the national competition will be short listed and put to a public vote on the board’s website.
BCB secretary Nigel White said the trade body was seeking a “fitting anthem to this national treasure”.
Mr White said he hoped people from all over the UK, including choirs and musicians, would take part.
This is a fun way to support British Cheddar and combine two of the best things in life – music and cheese”
He said: “Britain may produce over 700 named cheeses, but there’s no doubt that Cheddar is by far and away the nation’s favourite.
“In this year of celebrating all things British, the BCB is proud to be highlighting the amazing variety and popularity of British Cheddars and joining with UK cheese lovers to find a fitting anthem to this national treasure.”
