Cumbria’s Living Heritage – starts another season with lots of exciting things to do and see – on a shared mission to banish the idea that heritage is at all dusty.
We have members throughout Cumbria, from the Furness Peninsula and Kendal in the south, to Carlisle and Birdoswald in the north, covering an area that boasts two World Heritage Sites, and this year have welcomed new members, Lowther Castle & Gardens, the Forestry Commission’s Whinlatter Forest and the National Trust’s Steam Yacht Gondola. We now offers visitors and local residents something exciting and engaging to do in 38 different venues.
There are certainly brilliant things going on within the group this year, from outdoor theatre at Brantwood, a Fairy Day at Kirklinton Hall and Gardens and a Cumberland Sausage food and drink festival at Muncaster, to a Wannasee family music festival at Hutton-in-the-Forest, an Easter Dragon Quest at Birdoswald Roman Fort and a Drive-in Spooky Cinema at Carlisle Castle. This is just an enticing sample of what is on offer throughout 2018.
