The parish hosts Copeland’s first Academy at Westlakes on the former Wyndham School site and it home to four primary schools, namely Bookwell, St Bridget’s, Orgill and Moor Row.
Nearby fells provide panoramic views and the many local walks showcase the natural beauty of our surrounding environment.
Lowes Court Gallery has been in existence for over forty years and has supported the work of artists living and working in Egremont and surrounding villages, after the association had sensitively restored the oldest building in the Main Street in 19783 and creating a gallery and shop so if you are looking for something unique, then pop into the shop or go online at www.lowescourt.co.uk not forgetting the marvellous Florence Arts Centre located at the Florence mine which was opened in 1948 to exploit the rich deposits of haematite ore.
Egremont has its own Brass band which has a junior section and it plays for events organised by the town and further afield if they are asked.
Egremont’s long established annual Crab Fair is always held on the 3rd Saturday in September, it dates back to 1267 but many things have changed over the years but the parade of the apple cart and the World Gurning Championship still remains, likewise the clay pipe smoking and the singing of sentimental songs so for a day of fun,
laughter and enjoyment, this is a day not to be missed.
Egremont Amenity Committee have created a Christmas Winter Wonderland on Egremont Main Street and have invested in many new features to light up the town and it is getting a reputation as being one of the best Christmas events in the county.
Egremont has and is still producing world class rugby union and rugby league players who have learnt their skills at the town’s grounds. There is also football facilities operating from The Falcon Club belonging to SASRA.
Egremont has a Public Bowling Green situated at Howbank Road on land which the Town Council leases from Copeland Borough Council. The Bowling Green pavilion is owned by the Town Council while the Green is run and maintained by Egremont Town Bowling Club.

There is also a skate park in the Beck Green area and a play area at Orgill and Moor Row so there is a mix of sporting activities for all ages to offer the residents and visitors alike.
There is the Egremont parish cemetery. Which has won many awards for being beautifully maintained and has a special Jubilee garden which In 2012 was opened to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The Jubilee Garden was created within the grounds of cemetery and people who had loved ones buried in the cemetery were invited to donate a plant and write a small piece in their memory.
Over 140 plants were donated and two Memorial books were needed to create this pocket history of people and will be there for generations to see.
Such was the demand for people wanting to plant something, we have created another Memorial Book for anyone who wishes to write a piece about their loved ones buried in Egremont Cemetery. It was very interesting to read what a person did for a living, how they came to live in Egremont, their parents and siblings, where they lived, etc but if anyone wants more information, they can contact the office.
There is also the Egremont Market Hall – a multi use community hall situated in the middle of town on Market Street. The market hall has kitchen and bar facilities, disabled access, toilet, stair lift to the upstairs room. The stage area is a suitable venue for Pantomimes, Shows, Concerts etc. The main hall is beautiful and can accommodates up to 250, this is ideal for conferences, public events, parties, private functions etc., the smaller supper room can accommodate 20-50 people and is ideal for smaller meetings. there is also the small meeting room which hold 10-15 people.
This is a well used facility which houses the Town Council office at the rear of the building.
During the weeks, there are several regular sessions held including dog training, pilates, kettlebells, moky, tai chi, archaeological meetings, slimming world classes plus other events including concerts, school exams, car boot sales, pantomimes, plays and musicals plus much more.
