A record-breaking year for the Westmorland Show saw more than 35,000 people attend the one-day event. Visitors to the showground at Crooklands enjoyed scores of animal classes as well as an enlarged food theatre, hundreds of trade stands, demonstrations and exhibitions.

Show chief executive Christine Knipe said: ‘This year’s show took things to a whole new level. We have been determined to remain at heart an agricultural show and people like that. They enjoy having the chance to see the animals and learn about farming and get close to traditional values.

‘we are continually trying to improve things for visitors but that doesn’t necessarily mean moving away from your roots. We won’t meddle with the core of the show but we do try to keep up with modern trends as well and to put on a fresh face each year to keep people coming back.’
