Woolfest in England breaks attendance records.

We have been attending Woolfest in England for over the last 4 years and sadly could not make it this year. It seems to be growing in attendance every year and this year was a record breaking year for attendance and the amount of venders.

“We’ve been growing gradually over the seven years of Woolfest and had a record number of stalls this year at 140,” said organiser, Marion Woolcott from The Wool Clip, “but we still couldn’t quite believe the leap to over 2,500 people on the first day this year. Overall, I think we probably had over 5,000 visitors during the two days as there were also lots of children, especially on Saturday, and they don’t pay for entry. It was really good to welcome several local school groups to Woolfest on Friday and the students from Keswick, Cleator Moor and Cockermouth seemed to find plenty of interest.”
