July in the Lake District is absolutely brimming with agricultural shows and we suggest that if you’ve never been to one, now is the perfect opportunity. Following a year or two hiatus, most shows are back this summer and are bound to be upping their game to make up for the time lost. Generally, the shows feature livestock competitions, dog shows, live entertainment, Cumberland & Westmorland wrestling, food & trade stands, craft marquees, and activities for kids, but each one will, of course, differ in their own unique way.

Half Term, the Platinum Jubilee weekend and the official start of summer are all taking place this June so you can imagine there’s tons of great activities going on in the Lake District this month! We would encourage visitors and locals to get in touch with the local town council for information about Jubilee events taking place in a specific area, as there are tons of street parties planned all throughout Cumbria.

This year, in 2022, April weekend falls in the middle of the month with Easter Sunday taking place on the 17th.

Check out what's on in the Lake District this coming April and your book any tickets early to avoid disappointment.

The Lake District has some great events lined up for February and with the days getting longer as we approach the start of spring in March, it's a great time to come to the Lake District with less visitors and lots of space to explore the fells. And, with half term half way through the month, there are plenty of events going on to keep the whole family entertained.

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and were able to catch up with family and friends.
