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. Ticket prices are:
Advance purchase online only; Adult £12.00, Concession (over 65) £10.00
On the day: Adult £14.00 Concession £12.00
Children (under 16) FREE. Car parking FREE.

Exhibitor entries for the 2018 Steam Gathering closed at midnight on March 31st and with over 1100 exhibits accepted it is certain that this year`s Cumbria Steam Gathering will maintain the tradition of presenting both quantity and quality of preserved vehicles and machinery on show once again.  

The online discounted ticket system is live from the beginning of March and this year will include the option to purchase a copy of the Steam Gathering brochure at a discounted price. Your brochure will be available to collect on your arrival at the public entrance pay gates.

Advance ticket numbers are not restricted and the on line facility will remain available for ticket purchase until Friday July 27th. 

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.

Some places (we have a maximum of 8 trainees) are still available for young people aged 13 to 16 to take part in the Young Tractor Driver Training course that runs for two days, Friday July 27 and Saturday 28th.
