What a great start to Country Fest 2019! 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.
Despite the early afternoon showers, the demonstrations areas were packed as were the marquees including Sew Crafty, Vintage Revival, WI Marquee and Floral Design plus beautiful crafts on display and opportunities to shop until you dropped, especially in the tempting Food Zone with all manner of delicious treats available to purchase.
The exhibitions and demos proved a big hit as did the ever popular Companion Dog Show and Young Shepherds. With excellent music and dance displays, everything added up to a brilliant day enjoyed by all.
Country Fest will be doing it all again on Sunday 2 June with lots more of the same including the phenomenally daring stunt displays by the Bolddog Lings, Fell Pony Display Team, classic motorcycles, historic vehicles and stupendous kite flying. There will also be the Terrier Show and Terrier Racing, as well as a cheese making workshop from 10am. Discover Farming and the Rabbit Show are always popular with our young visitors. Showers are forecast, but there is still lots to do undercover. Country Fest offers the whole family a fun packed day out and is exceptionally good value. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday for another great day of celebrating the British countryside.
