Country Fest at Crooklands

Last night there was another terror attack in London. The terrorists want to disrupt our way of life, but we won’t let that happen. In a small part of the north west of England, very far away from any thoughts of terrorism, a very traditional British summer festival takes place – the Country Fest at Crooklands.

A bit smaller than the Westmorland Show, but lots to see. One of the best bits for me are the kites, which you can see from the motorway and must attract lots of inquisitive people.

But they weren’t the only things flying through the air. There was a display of motorbike acrobatics by Bold Dog. They were fantastic.

There were some tractors…

Of course there had to be tractors.

And tug of war…

The women showing some strength.

And of course, some refreshments.

A cheeky beer with an Angus Beef Burger.

It was a good day out.
