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 LA11 7LS by kind permission of Mr J Latham and Sons.

The 48th Cumbria Steam Gathering will take place over the weekend of July 25th and 26th.

First of all, a big thank you to all those who supported us and stayed to the bitter (and soggy) end in 2019. If only the weather gods would be equally obliging we would all be smiling!

Changes for 2020 include raising the age limit for most exhibit classes from 1985 to 1995.

We have a new class for this year to include modified, competition and supercars.  (Entries for this class will available from this website from April)

As usual we will have on show the usual mix of some of the finest preserved vehicles and machinery representing all forms of motorised transport plus those powered by steam and pedal, a large craft exhibition and the annually expanding and popular food hall.

A stroll around the busy traders section is always popular and for those who are engaged in a restoration project and looking for that elusive part, a visit to the autojumble area is a must.

If you need a sit down at any time the Vintage Village Tea Room will be providing afternoon teas and you can always take a breather in the grandstand and watch the show go by.

The grandstand is also the place to be to enjoy the antics of Dingle Fingle the undercover cop as he undertakes his madcap and relentless chase of Slippery Sid the classic car thief. Expect precision driving, stunts, lots of pyrotechnics and water!

Gates open at 09.00 and close at 17.00 each day.
