Cumbria show memories from years gone by
Last updated at 15:21, Wednesday, 06 August 2014
THEY are at the behest of mother nature – but that does not stop Cumbria from attending them en masse year after year.
As agricultural festival season gets into full swing, we today take a look back through our archives to reminisce about years gone by.
From magnificent beasts to the birds with the most impressive of plumage, animals take centre stage at these well-attended shows.
That’s not to say there is not room for others to show off their wares, with many of the events hosting competitions for home-baked goods, conserves and any number of delicious treats.
This year thousands enjoyed the Ulverston and North Lonsdale Show, as the sun made an appearance.
And today will see the crowds flock to Cartmel, where the racecourse hosts its annual event.
In our trip down picture memory lane today, we travel back to the late 1970s and the 1980s and stop by Cartmel, Millom and Broughton, Ambleside and the North Lonsdale show.
The fashions and hair styles have definitely changed – but the staple diet of events has not.
