Sheepfest 2015!

East Meets West in a little town in Cumbria.

12 - 19 September

Sheepfest was so successful in 2014 it has been extended in 2015 to 9 days and in recognition that 2015 is the Chinese Year of the Sheep this year there’ll be a distinctly Oriental feel to the celebrations. Pagoda Arts Centre in Chinatown, Liverpool is bringing its Chinese Youth Orchestra and holding a range of workshops from drumming to fan-making and local children are learning traditional Chinese dances. At the heart of Sheepfest will always be the wonderful sheep created by the people of Sedbergh and this year some very colourful guests are arriving to take their place amongst the Rough Fell and the Herdwicks; a Dragon may well be invited to lead the opening parade! 

100 strong sheep trail The Woolclip exhibition- Vernacular Spectacula: A textile tale of sheep, wool work and the landscape - from everyday to heirloom at Farfield Mill along side The Rebel Rag Ruggers who’s exhibition takes the Rag Rug to another Dimension; Craft and Wool market at the Peoples Hall on Sat 12th and Sat 19th; And across the Town: Music Demonstrations; Heritage Talks; Children’s workshops, Chinese Youth Orchestra & MEET THE DRAGON!

Supported by a grant from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority’s Sustainability Fund to encourage more people of Chinese descent to visit the National Park.
