Sponsoring the Cumberland Show as it celebrates its 180th year

Pioneer Foodstore | Cumberland Show | sponsorship | Carlisle, Cumbria

Once again we are proud to be sponsoring the locally-renowned Cumberland Show as it celebrates its 180th year this summer. Graham Jenkins, our managing director, is also president this year which is a great honour!

This year the annual event is held on Saturday 16th June at Brisco, near Carlisle and will see the Cumbrian community gather together to celebrate agriculture and rural life.

As ever, there will be a range of livestock classes including beef, dairy and sheep; heavy and light horses, donkey, show jumping, and horse driving competitions; poultry classes; dog show; and vintage vehicle classes.

The countryside area displays rural crafts and skills; a home industries marquee; craft hall; country living shopping arcade; food hall; a wide range of trade stands; and a variety of entertainment around the showfield, which all make for a great family day out.
