Penrith Winter Droving 2023

It’s nearly time for the Winter Droving…

We are very happy to once again be supporting Penrith’s Winter Droving as a Partner. The annual magical celebration of rural life, food, fun, masquerade, and fire is returning to Penrith town centre for its 12th year on Saturday the 28th October and 2023 is gearing up to the event’s biggest year yet.

Penrith’s streets will be bustling with stalls, creative activities, street performances and musical stages throughout the afternoon, all culminating in the highlight of the day – an enchanting fire and lantern procession throughout the town, with thousands of people lining the streets to watch the spectacle.

Created by Eden Arts, The Winter Droving has become one of Cumbria’s iconic cultural events, with over 20,000 people attending annually. The event has grown exponentially with audiences making the journey from all corners of the UK.

Director of Eden Arts, Adrian Lochhead said: “Ast Signs have been fabulous supporters of the Winter Droving and we are equally impressed by them as a great go ahead locally based business. The support that Ast Signs gives a local event like the Winter Droving is crucial in helping to make the event successful and as big as we can make it – it is true to say that without that support the event would suffer. When businesses like Ast Signs do this, they are playing a big role in ensuring that their local town is thriving, and that in return helps to make sure that it is a great place to work and live. We have a great respect for all that they do and the way that they go about their work.”
