NOW IT’S ROCK AND SCROLL FOR DOCTOR ALEX JAMES
"A rock star who has retreated to the idyllic Cotswold countryside has been presented with an honorary doctorate by the University of Gloucestershire.
Alex James who has swapped touring the globe with Britpop band Blur for cheese making in rural Kingham, said he was “thrilled”
to be given the honour at a ceremony last week.
Alex received his award from media, arts and technology faculty dean Dr Ben Calvert at the university’s graduation ceremony in Gloucester Cathedral, and is now an honorary doctor of the arts.
In conferring the award, Dr Calvert said: “We are today conferring an Honorary Doctorate on Alex James. A rock star, a farmer and cheese maker, a festival organiser, a writer and a champion of his local community in Oxfordfordshire.
“Alex has achieved success in a range of spheres where many can claim success in few. Whilst best known for his achievements in Blur, we today celebrate this full range of success built on hard work, drive and a real force of personality.”
An award winning cheese maker and creator of ‘Alex James Presents’ – a range of British artisan cheeses – Alex is currently developing a continental range of cheeses due to be launched in supermarkets later this year.
He hosted the food and music festival Jamie Oliver presents The Big Feastival with Alex James for the second year on his farm in September.
He said: “I’m thrilled to receive this Honorary Award and extremely grateful to the University of Gloucestershire.”
Alex writes a weekly column on all things food for The Sun, as well as a regular column on farm and family life in the Sunday Telegraph.
He lives on the farm in Kingham with his wife and five children.”
