You will find there is little else that excites those within The Lake District more than the possibility of sunshine and warm weather (and by warm I mean temperatures that actually surpass the 20°C barrier). Therefore, predictions of a 'hot' climate for the remaining Summer months have been met with cheers and hopeful hearts across the county. When the sun shines and the flora and fauna is in full bloom, the remarkable beauty is hardly comparable to anywhere else in the country.

 

Luckily, The Lake District and its surrounding area is host to a wide range of events and activities this August, which means you can have an unforgettable experience as The Lakes comes into its own. So whether you desire an adrenalin rush, theatrical entertainment, or a taste of local delicacies and traditions, The Lake District can oblige.

 

Mountain & Ghyll Adventure At Greenside

 

Want to have an active day with guaranteed fun? Explore the glorious natural features of the National Park while rock climbing/abseiling or ghyll scrambling in the fells above the Ulswater Valley. Set amongst breathtaking scenery, this adventure assures hilarity and adventure, whether you're with friends or your special other.

Theatre by the Lake in Keswick

 

If you long for a more sedate experience, but equally as entertaining, get lost in a play at the Theatre by the Lake. Set just a short walk from Derwentwater, the theatre has been described by The Independent as “The most beautifully located and friendly theatre in Britain”. August offers a range of productions allowing a choice of genres. For a comedy, 'Watch It, Sailor!' is ideal, on the other hand, 'The Vertical Hour' offers a more thought provoking show. If you are inclined to a more classic tale, 'Dial M for Murder' is a stylish revival of a well known story, which has been met with positive reviews.

The Cartmel Show

 

For a traditionally rural time, take a trip to the Cartmel Show, held on the first Wednesday in August. Offering stalls selling various delights and products, as well as entertainment centred around country living, there is something to enjoy for all parties and ages. The picturesque setting of the Cartmel Racecourse provides the backdrop for a truly delightful day out. For further information, visit http://www.cartmelagriculturalsociety.org.uk/theshow.html

 

Grasmere Sports

 

The annual Grasmere Sports show is a firm favourite for visitors and locals alike. Celebrating 166 years of existence, it is one of the most popular and traditional events in the English Lake District. Held on Sunday 28th August, Grasmere Sports provides a diverse experience compared to other country shows around. From Cumberland Wrestling to a Lakeland Sheepdog and Duck Show, you will struggle to be bored! For further information, visit http://grasmeresports.com/
