Satisfied Clients


Mitchells has many years experience hosting events, shows and festivals of all shapes and sizes, from small scale markets to classical music concerts to national weekend festivals attracting thousands of visitors.

Our experience, efficiency and flexibility as a venue combined with our renowned helpful and friendly approach helps alleviates stress and worry for event organisers leaving you free to  concentrate on the content of your event rather than worrying about the details of the venue.

But don’t just take our word for it.  Here are some testimonials from satisfied clients who have used Mitchells as a venue for several years:-

“Woolfest is a national, annual weekend festival celebrating sheep and wool and all aspects of natural fibres.  We now attract over 4000 visitors a year and Mitchells location and building have played a big part in that success.  But it’s the people at Mitchell’s that really make the difference, from the cheerful support during a frantic set up to the patient help on car parking and all the grotty and hidden jobs in between, we’d struggle to run Woolfest anywhere else.”

Marion Woolcott, Event Organiser, Woolfest

Fell Gather

“Fell Gather regards Mitchell’s Lakeland Livestock Centre as the ideal venue for our annual Festival of Food and Farming.  Being situated just off the A66, the site is easy to find for visitors and has the added attraction of ample free parking. Visitors are impressed with the many on-site facilities such as easy access to electricity points  and there is the added benefit of a café and bar where good quality food and drinks are available.  Being entirely undercover means that adverse weather conditions are never an issue to contend with and never threaten the success of the event.”
