Event Description

Join the Herd! – fire, animation, music and merriment

…..including a traditional Cumbrian market featuring local food and drink, and high quality arts and crafts.

There are rural games such as tug of war and hay bale racing to win the Drovers Cup (currently held by AST Signs) as well as fantastic array of street entertainment.

Then as night falls welcome the mystical masked procession…featuring fire, music, mayhem and animals aplenty.

Now in its sixth year the Winter Droving has quickly established itself as a key event in the Cumbrian calendar, attracting thousands of people from all over the north. There are lots of opportunities to join in (carry a torch in the procession or enter a team into the Drovers Cup) or to simply stand around gawping and feeding your face and maybe throw a few coconuts about!!!

Join the Herd for a spectacular celebration of winter and Penrith’s agricultural heritage – illuminating Penrith with fire, animation, music and merriment.
