Country Fest 2012 confirmed for May

Country Fest 2012 has been scheduled for next month, providing people on Lake District walking holidays with an event to bolster their visit to the region.

It is now in its fourth year and is staged by the Westmorland County Agricultural Society. It will take place at the County Showground, Crooklands, and provides people with a fantastic insight into the countryside.

The event will also celebrate the diversity and quality of the independent food and drink suppliers which sell goods in Cumbria and the surrounding region.

In addition to a full programme of talks and demonstrations, those visiting the event can also understand where the local produce comes from through a number of trade stands, explaining the great effort that is put into such food.

While getting a taste for countryside life, those visiting the show will also be able to take part in a number of activities, including music and dance, crafts and a terrier racing event on the event's final day.

The Sunday will also feature an appearance from the Vander Brothers, who will take part in remarkable aerial show with their space wheel structure, guaranteeing excitement for all of those in attendance.

If all this is not enough for those considering the event, 70s music act 10CC will perform on the Saturday night of the show as part of celebrations of their 40th anniversary.

They will be supported by popular rhythm and blues act Aynsley Lister and his band, while local Kendal group the Fabulous Picasso Brothers will also perform on the bill.

While people are enjoying the many musical acts, they can also explore a selection of Cumbrian artisan food stalls and visit a Cumbrian beer festival marquee.

With so much to do, a trip to the Country Fest is bound to appeal to those visiting the Lake District in the coming weeks.
