THESE are some photos from the late 90s and early 2000s of the Cumberland Show, a well regarded asset of Carlisle over the long years of running.

The Cumberland Show started in 1832, however some shows have been cancelled due to war, disease and weather over this time. The show has been held on different times of the year throughout it’s long history, and at several different venues including Warwick Road, Bitts Park and Rickerby Park.

The Cumberland Show has range of livestock classes and has thousands of animals as part of the day. There is often a food hall with local products, and cookery demonstrations.

From 2013, Home industries, created a marquee displaying hundreds of home made items, and features entered by schools.
The day is filled to the brim with entertainment such as the Shetland Pony Grand National, birds of prey shows, wrestling, singing, dancing and music.
