2021 Westmorland County Show – What’s On
For over 200 years, 222 years for Westmorland, agricultural shows have brought together communities, showcasing rural life while providing businesses a platform from which to trade.
Westmorland County Show has survived world wars, recessions and the Great British weather.
Chief Executive Christine Knipe said: "We very much look forward to welcoming everyone back to the 2021 Westmorland County Show – together we can make it happen.
"The 222nd Westmorland County Show promises to be another excellent event and for the first time in our history will be held over two days. This is entirely due to the pandemic and the commitment to ensuring the show is as safe as possible for everyone concerned.
"To manage our safe return, there will be a number of changes, however we are confident that the ethos of the Show will remain.
"We are aware that attendance will be limited, so by running over two days we believe this is the best way to spread visitor numbers.
"Livestock classes will be split across both days and the layout is being overhauled to make best use of our extensive Showground."
A full programme of activities will be held on both days, including the NFU's Discovery Barn, WI, Learning for Life, The Sheep Show and Vintage Tractors.
NFU Vice President Tom Bradshaw will also be attending the show.
