Events in the Main Ring

The Main Ring at Mitchell’s is associated with most of our animal-related events 

 For 2018, the Main Ring saw the following:

 Talk by Sue Blacker on Fibre and Fleece. Everything you needed to know about selecting the right fleece and using it for your project. 

Talk by Peter Titley (former president of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust), followed by the Rare Breeds Parade.

Talk by Andrea Meanwell, aka The Westmorland Shepherdess, about her new book, 'A Native Breed', the story of how she started her hill farm in the Lake District. Followed by questions and answers and book signing. Copies of her books can be bought from The Wool Clip

We were sorry that our popular sheep shearing demonstrations from Cathy had to be cancelled at the last minute, and were very grateful to Andrea Meanwell for stepping in at short notice. 

As soon as we have our programme of events for 2019, we will let you know here, and through social media.
