President's Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to address these few words as President of Penrith Show. I am extremely proud and honoured to have been asked to take on this role for 2018.

I am a relative newcomer to Cumbria but I have been involved with Show throughout my time here by virtue of the fact that I was CEO of Penrith Building Society (a main sponsor of the Show).

We all live in a beautiful part of the country in a county that is one of the most rural in the UK and Penrith Show is a great community event and a chance for us to come together and showcase our finest farming, agriculture and other local businesses. We know that local folk love coming to the Show but we also attract a fair share of visitors form far and wide and it's a great chance for Cumbria to promote itself.

Penrith Show grew from a humble beginnings and is now one of the largest stock and agricultural shows in the North of England and draws large crowds. The Committee that organises the event every year puts in an enormous amount of work and is ably led and supported by the Secretary and the Chairman who work all year round preparing for the event.

This year promises to be the usual lively mix of trade stands, places to eat and drink and have a good crack!

I am delighted to welcome everyone to the 2018 Show and as ever, thank you so much for supporting us.

Mr Amyn Fazal

President 2018
