Cartmel Show

The Show


Cartmel Show is held in the stunning village of Cartmel, near Grange over Sands, just 20 minutes from junction 36 of the M6.

The main ring will host the Shetland Pony Grand National terrier racing, parading heavy horses in their finery and the impressive Grand Parade of prize-winning animals in the afternoon.

Cumbria (and particularly the Cartmel Peninsula and surrounding area) is well known for its local gourmet delicacies, so where better to try them than at Cartmel Show? Take home freshly baked bread, hand-made cakes and chocolates, local cheeses, meats and pies from the local butcher, plus locally produced gins, beers and much more. If you love to cook, visit our Food Theatre to watch demonstrations from top local chefs!

Your little ones will love the range of activities on offer, from archery and a bucking bronco to circus skills, a bouncy castle, birds of prey and a few creepy crawlies too!

In amongst all of this, there are plenty of chances to browse amongst stalls selling handmade gifts, country clothing, homewares, outdoor and leisure goods. Admire the traditional skills of local craftspeople in the horticulture and village industries marquees and don’t forget to visit the poultry and rabbit marquee with its astounding range of pedigree animals!
