Thank you also to all the exhibitors and demonstrators who were such a vital part of the event, including SmileFactor10, Rare Breeds Survival Trust, Jez Avery, the Fell Pony Display Team, Ferretworld, the many & varied musicians and the amazing young dancers from Rigney Bank Ballet School and Elite Dancers.

Make a Day of it!
The Westmorland County Show is one of the largest one day Shows in the Country and certainly one of the oldest, given that the Society was founded in 1799 and is still going from strength to strength 215 Shows later. Always held on the second Thursday in September each year; the Show attracts over 30,000 people. We pride ourselves on being a major livestock Show, with its heart firmly in agriculture.
