Westmorland County Show 2016
Despite the challenges, what a fantastic Westmorland County Show 2016! On behalf of the Society, a huge Thank You to everyone who visited the Showground and helped to make the event so successful. The wet weather along with accidents unrelated to the Show on major access routes and a recent road closure integral to the agreed traffic management plan added to our challenges. Rest assured, a full review of arrangements has already begun and we will be working with all relevant agencies and authorities to improve matters for the future.
Nevertheless, a huge amount of people enjoyed the Show and there were thousands of smiling faces throughout the Showground. A massive Thank You also to the exhibitors, both livestock and trade, demonstrators and contractors, along with the hundreds of judges and volunteer stewards who were such a vital part of this annual event. Photos and further reports will be posted over the coming days, so please keep checking back. In the meantime, next year’s Westmorland County Show will take place on Thursday 14th September 2017. Hope to see you then!

We are delighted to announce that Westmorland County Show has been crowned Cumbria’s Tourism Event of the Year!
This is a huge accolade for Westmorland – for the directors, members, stewards, judges and visitors who make the Show such a special and significant event in the County’s calendar. The award was made even more special, having been decided by public vote for the first time. So a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us.
