Sat & Sun 29th & 30th July 2017


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 dates for your diary for 2017 are Saturday July 29th and Sunday July 30th. Gates open at 9.00am each morning and close at 5.00pm.

Entries have now closed for the 2017 Steam Gathering.

We can now reveal that thanks to the efforts of the Estate of Barry Sheene, Suzuki GB, Martin Crooks of Crooks Suzuki and not forgetting our own Steve Morris, we will have two of the late Barry Sheene`s world championship winning Suzuki RG500 motorcycles on display at the Steam Gathering. It is 14 years since Barry died but he is still remembered with fondness by motor cycle racing fans around the globe. 

Special attractions already booked include the Broke FMX extreme Moto Cross display team alongside traditional favourites the Sheep Show, the Pantonic All Stars Orchestra, the Morecambe Bay Archers and the all action North West Lawn Mower Racing Association.

The temporary sandpit, a popular innovation with the younger visitors last year will return in 2017 along with the Mr Alexanders Travelling Show, entertainment for all the family during the weekend.

For the more adventurous, the Clip & Climb climbing wall is sure to prove a hit and if you ever wanted to be close to a bird of prey a visit to Joe`s Owls and mobile zoo will be a must.

All this in addition to the traditional displays of preserved machinery and vehicles, working displays, craft exhibition and collections of artefacts and memorabilia from days gone by.

When it all gets too much, just relax in the grandstand and admire some of the finest examples of preserved vehicles as they parade around the main arena.

The Food Hall will again be packed with all manner of good things from local producers and numerous catering outlets will be located around the rally site. 

Discounted tickets will be available to purchase on line from February 28th by clicking on the Ticket Sales button on this website.
