Why not go to the traditional Lakeland sports.
The 2013 Annual Grasmere Lakeland Sports, now celebrating 161 years of existence, has been a regular annual event since 1868, unbroken except for the two periods of the First and Second World Wars. Now one of the most popular traditional events in the English Lake District, participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling, Fell Running and Hound Trails.
Thursday 14th August 2014 sees the annual sheep dog trials and hound show. Set in the spectacular Rydal Park it has been going for over 100 years.
Westmorland County Show is held in 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 and is still going from strength to strength 213 Shows later.
Voted by the Farmers Guardian readers as the 5th top Show and the only one-day show in the top 12!
