Dalston Agricultural Show

We had a record attendance of just over 7000 people at Dalston Show this year - the weather was kind on the Saturday despite grey days before and after and as ever the Show was supported from far and wide - because we have a reputation for having a busy main ring, something for all the family, national standard stock and a high quality equine programme;

  • The main ring this year included; The highly entertaining and talented Cumbrian Axemen, the fascinating Falconry Life, the impressive Gun Dog Display, Stock Judging, Cumberland/Westmorland Wrestling, The Grand Parade, Terrier Racing, Fancy Dress, Pet Show and much much more
  • There was entertainment throughout the day from a variety of street entertainers, Punch & Judy, Jesters Circus, Border Brass Band, Musical Ruth, and more.
  • As usual there was a tremendous show of stock and horses that would make any show proud, as well as a full programme of equestrian events.
  • And the new Horse Section was a great success, and included classes for: Veterans, Ex- Racehorses, Coloured Horses and Riding Club type Pony/Horses

The Industrial Marquee at Dalston is one of the best in the County ranging from embroidery to photography or flower arranging to vegetables with well over 2000 entries this year. The Craft tent and over 80 trade stands had a great day and there was something for everyone’s interest.
