PRLog - May 16, 2012 - What many thought would be the last Langdale Gala took place just a year ago, however local people have gathered together to save the infamous event which has been an iconic tradition in the valley for many years.

The Langdale Gala, a traditional Cumbrian event located in the heart of the Lakes on Walthwaite Meadow, Chapel Stile, brings the local community together for a day of fun and sports once a year, traditionally on the first Sunday of July.

Due to various reasons, including the tough economic climate, the gala’s committee had to make the hard decision to stand down after many successful years, leaving a bleak future for the Gala.

However in a bid to save the sporting event a group of locals have decided to club together and take over the running of this popular day to keep the tradition going.

This year the event takes place on 1st July are the new committee are promising fresh ideas and a slightly different approach which is hoped will provide one of the most memorable Langdale Gala’s to date.

Claire Ives, Head of the Gala committee, said: “We’re confident that local people will join us to save this tradition which is a key date of the local calendar. Everyone loves a good disco so we’re looking forward to having a bit fun whilst raising money for what we believe is an important community event.”

With the Gala day fast approaching the committee are working hard to pull the event together with an evening disco arranged for Saturday 30th June. The disco is being held at Walthwaite Meadow, Chapel Stile and children are welcome until 9pm.

All funds raised will go to support the gala which will be a family friendly event bursting with fun and quirky activities ranging from junior and senior fell races, Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling, the famous pet show, craft stalls, circus workshops, music and food. www.langdale-gala.co.uk
