Last weekend’s Lowther Show in Cumbria was another spectacular triumph for award-winning event organiser, Countryman Fairs, who managed to draw in thousands of happy visitors to the picturesque estate.
This is the fifth consecutive show held on the Lowther Estate, home to the historic 16th century house and surrounding gardens.
It was the ideal location for the two-day show which saw particularly big crowds watching more than 1,000 gundogs compete in various challenges. The clay shooting, horse driving trials and hound show also saw huge crowds flocking in to see who would be crowned the champion on the day.
The Lowther Trail Run also proved incredibly popular with a record 162 participants lining up for the 13-mile challenge.
Various have-a-go activities attracted plenty of enthusiastic participants, such as falconry, archery and crossbows and catapults.
Event organiser Countryman Fairs, have a vast portfolio of seven regional country shows taking place across England. Ian Harford, CEO, said he was delighted with how well the show went, he said: “The 2016 Lowther Show couldn’t have gone any better. I don’t have the official attendance count yet, however I wouldn’t be surprised if we’ve broken our previous record. It was a beautiful sunny weekend and everyone turned out with the unified aim to have a jolly good time and enjoy what the countryside has to offer. So far the feedback from visitors has been wholeheartedly positive which makes all of our hard work worthwhile.”
The last event in the Countryman Fair’s calendar is the Midland Game Fair which takes place over 17th and 18th September. To find out more visit the website here and join us on Facebook to keep up with the latest news and developments.
