Many families from the Southport area made the short journey up the M6 to the Cartmel Show 2012.  The Traditional Country Show set in the heart of beautiful South Lakeland is the most comprehensive and picturesque show in the North.

Cartmel Show is always a firm favourite for visitors which is held on the first Wednesday every August.

The show offers a profusion of family entertainment packed into the picturesque parkland setting at Cartmel Racecourse.

The Show provides the opportunity to sample the delights of rural life at its best.  There was carriage driving competitions, show jumping, Shire Horses, cattle, sheep, poultery, dog shows and much more throughout the day.
