What’s On

We will endeavor to keep you posted on new events

Hawkshead Beer Festival - Staveley (18 - 20th March)

We have been doing them twice a year since 2007. It’s all about British craft brewing... what’s new, who’s new, what’s stood the test of time, but most of all... what’s good. It’s mostly cask. But there’s a fair amount of keg too.

Cumbria Life Sausage Festival (30th April - 2nd May)

Celebrating the finest food and drink the county has to offer. With a wide range of stalls providing tempting goodies, you won’t know where to begin.

Brathay Windermere Marathon and Half Marathon (Sunday 22 May)

Join us again in 2016 for more delightful music in stunning locations.

Westmorland County Show (8th September)

The Westmorland County Show is one of the largest one day Shows in the Country and certainly one of the oldest, given that the Society was founded in 1799. Voted by the Farmers Guardian readers as the 5th top Show and the only one-day show in the top 12! We pride ourselves on being a major livestock Show, with its heart firmly in agriculture.
