Access Statement

The Lunesdale Agricultural Society Limited holds its annual Agricultural Show on the second Tuesday in August each year.

The Show is held on Underley Park, Kirkby Lonsdale and a separate page on the website gives detailed directions on how to find the show field. We are fortunate that we share the show field with Kirkby Lonsdale Rugby Club and so we have large level areas, however, there are slopes on the site between different areas of the show.

All the surfaces on the show field are of grass including those in the marquees. Wheelchair and motorized scooter users should be aware that whist the grass is shorter than field grass it is longer than a lawn. Self-propelled wheel chair users would probably prefer to have someone pushing them.

There is a hard track for vehicles coming on to the show field and one that runs the length of the show field between the main ring area and sheep area that can be used by wheelchairs.

Public car parking is free and is on the hillside overlooking the show field. There is an area designated for blue badge holders closer to the main ring area. Parking at the ringside is currently charged at £5 per car.

Details of admission charges can be found on the visitors’ page on the website. Tickets can be purchased in advance at a rate below the gate admission price on the day.

There is Catering available throughout the day both on the show field and in the Catering Marquee.

The Rugby Clubhouse bar is also open during the show. Access to the clubhouse is by one small step.

Toilets are available in the clubhouse and we have portable units around the show field including two for use by the disabled.

We have medical assistance on the show field during the day and this is clearly marked on the map of the show field in the show catalogue. There is also a vet in attendance throughout the day.

Dogs are welcome to attend the show but we ask that they are kept on a lead at all times. Dogs are not allowed in the Poultry marquee.
