The Winter Droving Procession

The Winter Droving Procession

As darkness falls The masked Winter Droving Procession makes it way through the town


A right rural gathering including a traditional Cumbrian market featuring local food and drink, and high quality arts and crafts.

There are rural games such as tug of war and hay bale racing to win the Drovers Cup as well as fantastic array of street entertainment.

Then as night falls welcome the mystical masked procession...featuring fire, music, mayhem and animals aplenty.

Join the Herd for a spectacular celebration of winter and Penrith’s agricultural heritage – illuminating Penrith with fire, animation, music and merriment.

For 2018 The Winter Droving are bringing Lancashire based Crafty Vintage to join the market, adding a new stage and adding new green initiatives throughout the event too.
