Welcome to Cartmel Agricultural Society

Home of Cartmel Show

Get set for a brilliant family day out at a traditional agricultural show with a big heart. Lovingly nicknamed The ‘Royal’ Cartmel Show by locals, you’ll see an amazing array of livestock, all competing for the red rosette from cattle, sheep, light and heavy horses, rabbits and more. Try local delicacies in the food hall and see traditional sports like Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling.

Your little ones will love the range of activities on offer, from archery to circus skills, bouncy castle, birds of prey and a few creepy crawlies too. Shop stalls selling locally handmade gifts, clothing, homewares, outdoor and leisure goods and admire the traditional skills of craftspeople in the horticulture and village industries marquees. We’re grateful to Holker Group who continue to provide Cartmel Park as the home of Cartmel Show since 1897.
