Children in Hampton got hands on experience when they learnt to make cheese as part of a festival dedicated to the dairy delight.

The mature youngsters tried their hands at separating the curd from the way outside the Cheese and Wine Company store as part of the Hampton Cheese week, which runs from April 20 to 27.

Cheese lovers can take part in various activities including a cheese cookery demonstration with former Coronation Street actor Sean Wilson, a food and drink taste challenge and a cheese and wine quiz night.

The week will finish with a cheese award ceremony on Sunday, April 27.
