Join us to celebrate the Cumberland Sausage plus all great Cumbrian culinary achievements!
Sponsored by Cumbria Life, this is a weekend of food, drink and fun over the bank holiday, in association with local supplier of quality Cumbrian meat products Taste of the Lakes. Click here for more information.
This is a very rare opportunity to camp in style in the grounds of Muncaster Castle! So why not enjoy the day's sausage antics and then relax in your lovely tent in the evening, ready to do it all again on the Sunday! Weather permitting, there will be a camp fire in the evening and you are very welcome to bring BBQs (providing they are on legs - no disposable ones, sorry.. They scorch the grass...) so you can cook your day's purchases!
There are the competitions:
The Cumberland Sausage Club will be running the 2015 Favourite Butchers Cumberland Sausage Competition. This will start with an online poll in April on the Club's website, then the top five polling sausages will be tasted by visitors to the Sausage Festival over the three days. Entry to the poll is by nomination and is open to all Cumbrian butchers who wish to enter and will supply sausage for the tasting.
First Choice Meats will run this year's Cumberland Sausage Eating Competition. Entry is for teams of three with entry forms available on the First Choice Meats website.
