SHOW CANCELLED

 

It is with great regret that Keswick Show is cancelled this year. Due to the ongoing wet weather through July & August the land is not fit to hold a Show. A meeting was held on Wednesday evening by the executive committee and after much deliberation the decision was made to cancel as there was no facilities for car parking due to the condition of the ground, the land owner supported any decision that the committee made. It is very disappointing but I would like everyone who has supported the show over the years and hope that they will do so again in the future.

About the show

 

Keswick Agricultural Society was founded in 1860, being one of the oldest Societies in Keswick.

Keswick Show is held every August Bank Holiday Monday this year being the 28th August.

 

In 2014 the Show field moved to its present site near Braithwaite just off the A66 which proved to be very successful. Unfortunately, due to the effects of Storm Desmond in December 2015 the Show was unable to take place in 2016.

 

The object of the Show is to encourage improvements in the Breed of Stock, management of land and in the general promotion of agriculture.

At the show:

• Cattle, Ponies, Horses, Sheep, Dogs & Poultry

• Industrial Marquee for Home produce
