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.
