The Lake District has very rich history if the matter concerns art and literature. Many very famous poets and writers lived there and were inspired by the beauty of the area. Among them were so called Lake poets William Wordsworth, Hartley Coleridge, Robert Southey, the children's author Beatrix Potter, and many famous English Artists, Sculptors, Actors, Playwrites and Musicians. Nowadays there's Summer theatre performances in the Old Laundry Theatre. Lake District has its own distinctive sports such as fell running, hound trailing, and Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling. Sometimes celebrations are taking place at valley shows, where indigenous breeds of sheep and local crafts and foods are presented.
