New date set for Upperby Gala, Carlisle

Upperby Gala 2024

This year’s Upperby Gala has been rearranged and will be held on Sunday 28 July at Hammond’s Pond, Carlisle.

The event was originally planned for Monday 27 May but was postponed due to saturated ground conditions following heavy rain.

It is set to be a great family day out with entertainment to suit all ages.

The popular community gala will include a packed programme of fun activities.

Organised by Cumberland Council and supported by the Friends of Hammond’s Pond Group, Upperby Gala will provide free fun for all the family between 1pm and 4pm.

Food stalls will be providing refreshments throughout the event, plus Hammond’s Pond Café will also be open throughout the day.

The programme for the event will be announced on the build-up to the event. Follow Cumberland Council’s social media channels and website for updates.
