A stone face as new principal partner for Penrith Show is revealed

7th January 2020

Penrith Agricultural Society has announced a new  ‘Principal Partner’ for Penrith Show 2020. It has chosen to work with Cumbrian Stone – the Penrith based, natural stone manufacturer that works on projects all over the country.

Founded in 2006, Cumbrian Stone is a specialist stone company that has continued to grow from its base on the Gilwilly Trading Estate in Penrith. The team works on a range of commissions of all sizes across the UK. Closer to home they recently worked on the new Eden Deployment Centre, the reconstruction of Brougham Bridge and several restoration projects at Lowther Castle.

Society Chairman Richard Utting said “ We’re delighted that a local business with such a great national reputation can support the show. When we first met Sam Morris to discuss the sponsorship, we visited their showroom and were amazed at the scale of what they achieve and the range of natural stone they can provide - they can turn stone into anything  - including a very large chess set.    It’s easy to see why they are  widely respected across the industry as a leading natural stone supplier.

“As ‘Principal Partner’ Cumbrian Stone will receive a specially tailored range of sponsor benefits. We’re currently looking at how the show can make the most of the support they are offering. We’ve had a first meeting and  and we’re excited about the initial ideas and are looking forward to developing this relationship for the future.”

Sam Morris, Sales & Marketing Manager for Cumbrian Stone commented “Cumbrian Stone is delighted to be working with the team behind Penrith Show and we’re pleased to be principal partner for the start of a new decade.

“Stone has been a part of life in Eden for centuries, it’s part of our heritage – and so is Penrith Show. It’s important that local businesses continue to support events like this which bring the community together and celebrate the best of farming and crafts in our area. We’re looking forward to getting closer to the show and reminding people to write the date in stone -  Saturday 18th July. www.penrithshow.co.uk
