Sat & Sun 30th - 31st July 2016


Welcome to The Cumbria Steam Gathering Online

Welcome to the website for the Cumbria Steam Gathering.

A weekend of two halves weatherwise for the 2015 Steam Gathering, Saturday beautiful, Sunday sadly brought cooler temperatures and rain during the middle of the day, fortunately not in quantities serious enough to curtail the days activities. Steam was raised, machines of all  types were polished, pampered and paraded, lawn mowers were raced and the Red Dragon Monster Truck cavorted around its special arena monstering everything in site. In the main arena there were queues for the traction engine driving on both mornings and the Inch Perfect Trials Team gave two shows each day demonstrating their incredible motorcycling skills.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the weekend, visitors, exhibitors, traders and all the other bodies without whose input the event could not take place. Thank you for telling us when we got things wrong or right; constructive criticism is always welcome. For those who were disappointed, please accept our apologies, we hope to do better in the future! 

An extra special thank you to the loyal band of volunteers who, in the space of a week, construct what is virtually a small village and then take it down again.

All being well the dates for 2016 will be July 30th and 31st. We hope to welcome you all again. Entry forms will be available early in the new year.
