Woolfest 2018 at Cockermouth promises to be “blooming” marvellous as the original British festival of wool falls within British Flowers Week. Woollen flowers will be filling the Small Ring at Mitchell’s Lakeland Livestock Centre as part of a fundraising project with West House. Visitors are being asked to create flowers in wool – knitted, crocheted, felted and sewn, even pompom-ed – and to bring these along. The flowers will be collected, displayed and then sold or used by the local charity in its Café West venues in Keswick, Whitehaven and Workington and its garden shop in West Cumbria.
There’ll be lots to see and do at Woolfest with over 150 inspiring wool craft stalls, skill demonstrations and the From Fell to Fabulous exhibition as well as livestock stands, a rare breed parade, shearing demonstrations and a raw fleece sale.
Woolfest opens at 10am on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 June at Mitchell’s Lakeland Livestock Centre (CA13 0QQ) and entry costs £10 per day (including programme) or £15 for a two-day ticket with free entry for accompanied children and free parking. Directions and details are online at www.woolfest.co.uk.
