Sat & Sun 28th & 29th July 2018


Welcome to The Cumbria Steam Gathering Online

Welcome to the website for the Cumbria Steam Gathering which takes place annually over the last weekend in July. Our home since 1986 has been Cark Airfield, Flookburgh, Grange over Sands, Cumbria LA11 7LS by kind permission of Mr J Latham and Sons. 

The 46th Cumbria Steam Gathering will be held over the weekend of July 28th and 29th 2018. Gates open at 09.00am and close at 5.00pm.

Planning for the 2018 Steam Gathering has been underway for some time but with the advent of the New Year activity is raised another notch as the entry forms for exhibitors begin to be distributed during the first weeks of January.

Much thought has been given to the field layout this year and some fairly major changes have been made which hopefully will allow those areas of the site badly affected by the adverse weather conditions of 2017 the chance to recover.

In order to broaden the scope of the event, classes of exhibit which previously had an upper age limit of 1982 have had the age restriction lifted so that we will now accept vehicles and machines with a build date extending to the end of 1985.

Atractions already booked are our main arena display which this year will be provided by the Kangaroo Kid who is guaranteed to amaze by doing unimaginable things with a quad bike, everyone`s favourite steel band, the Pantonic All Stars wil be with us again and after a popular debut last year, Mr Alexander`s Travelling Show returns for a second visit. 

If you would care to see pictures of Steam Gatherings past, they can be viewed by opening the the galleries section of the website of the Cumbria Steam & Vintage Vehicle Society,
