What a great start to Country Fest 2018! The Westmorland Agricultural Society would like to say a big thank you to everyone who visited the Showground on Saturday and helped to make the first day of Country Fest such a huge success.
The demonstrations areas were packed as were the marquees including Sew Crafty with the friendly Scarecrows and poppy making. The Vintage Revival and WI Marquee were busy and opportunities to shop until you dropped, especially in the tempting Food Zone with all manner of delicious treats available to purchase.
The new flower exhibitions by Flowers North West and demos proved a big hit as did the ever popular Dog Show and Young Farmers Tug of War Final. With amazing live music and dance displays, everything added up to a brilliant day enjoyed by all.
Country Fest will be doing it all again on Sunday 3 June from 10am until 4pm with lots more of the same including the daring stunt displays by the Jason Smyth Adrenaline Tour Motorbike and Quad Stunt Show, Fell Pony Display Team, classic motorcycles, historic and military vehicles. There will also be the Terrier Show and crowd pleasing Terrier Racing, as well as a children’s baking workshop from 10am. Discover Farming and the Rabbit Show are always popular with our young visitors and the fine weather looks set to continue.
Country Fest offers the whole family a fun packed day out and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday for another great day of celebrating the British countryside.
