Thursday 10th September 2015
8am - 5.30pm
With Show Day just around the corner, arrangements are well underway for the 216th Westmorland County Show.
Voted as one of the UK’s favourite Agricultural Shows, and Cumbria's Tourism Event of the Year, the Westmorland County Show is one of the largest one day Shows in the Country, held on the second Thursday in September attracting 30,000 people. We pride ourselves on being a major livestock Show, with its heart firmly in agriculture. Sections include cattle, sheep, goats, horses, pigs, heavy horses, alpacas, dogs and poultry, as well as marquees for The Women's Institute, Learning or Life, Crafts from Cumbria - supporting a wide range of wonderful artisan crafts, Food Hall - entirely supported by local producers promoting their products, with special demonstrations, Rural Crafts and over 350 trade stands. Not forgetting the very popular Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling.
Following their highly successful visits, the Sheep Show returns to entertain and educate all our visitors, a truly entertaining show with the infamous dancing sheep - fun on many levels. The Superb Members enclosure with marquee upon the plateau area has a fantastic view overlooking the Main Ring.
An enhanced free bus service will operate throughout the day from Kendal & Milnthorpe and a “fast track” entrance at Gate C is available for those with pre-paid or Members’ tickets. A dedicated cycle park is provided opposite the main entrance.
New for 2015
