The Lowther Show arrived inside the grounds of Lowther Castle at the weekend, bringing a fantastic line-up of sporting pursuits and country inspired living to the stunning Cumbrian countryside.
Visitors in their thousands were treated to first-class entertainment over at Lowther’s headline attraction, the Lowther Horse Driving Trials and also inside the Realtree Main Arena. With demonstrations from the Stampede Stunt Company, Ye Olde Redtail Falconry and The Essex Dog Display, visitors were spoilt for choice.
The weekend’s event also played host to further qualifying rounds in the Chudleys Gundog Championship, BASC Clay Shooting competitions and Terrier and Lurcher events with many confirming their places at this September’s Midland Game Fair Grand Final.
Other features that were popular with visitors across the weekend included the Folk Roots Festival, the brand new Tug of War and Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling, which attracted lots of teams and interest inside the showground, as well as the Food Festival and crafts and antiques fairs. The whole weekend witnessed visitors enjoying the celebratory atmosphere and getting stuck into lots of new activities and sporting pursuits.
With a fantastic selection of trade stands selling lots of wonderful countryside goods and produce too, the outdoor event ended up being very well received from a truly receptive audience.
Operations Director, Jerome Roberts, says of the weekend’s showcase: “We are so pleased that so many people joined us at the Lowther Show this weekend. We were thrilled that visitors got involved in the huge array of sporting activities and family entertainment and enjoyed the celebratory atmosphere of the Show. With only one more event left in the Countryman Fairs calendar, the Midland Game Fair in September, we do hope visitors will join us for the last event of the season and get involved in the sporting finals as well as lots of outdoor countryside activities!”
