The Lakeland Country Fair takes place at Torver, near Coniston, in beautiful countryside looking across to the Coniston fells and Coniston Old Man. It is easily accessible, at the junction of the A593 and A5084, a few miles west of Coniston village.
As well as being a typical Cumbrian show, the Lakeland Country Fair acts as a showcase for traditional Cumbrian skills and activities. There will be Herdwick sheep on display and demonstrations of hand-clipping will take place during the afternoon.
Features include a Terrier Show followed by Terrier Racing, a Lurcher and Whippet Show, a family Dog Show, Childrens' Sports, a Stick Show, a Foxhound Show, and a Horn-blowing competition! There will be Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling, as well as Fell Races for adults and juniors. Unfortunately we were not able to have a Ferret Show in 2016, but are hoping to re-instate it this year.
