Summer has arrived in Northumberland!

The events 2 look forward to...once we have cleared the snow:
May 27 [Bank Holiday Monday]: Northumberland County Show at Bywell - I am pleased to say the event is a massive one this year and bigger and better than ever. After a marathon all day judging effort of the 250 trade stands last year
I am to judge the outdoor trade stands this year - I cannot wait. Put the date in your diary

Other upcoming events I would really recommend:
- The Haltwhistle Walking Festival April 27 - May 6

- Hexham Book Festival: ongoing and through May

If you like Shows then here are a few of the best:
June 15: Roman Wall Show
August 4: Gilsland Agricultural Show
August 17: Allendale Show
Bank Holiday Monday August 31: Bellingham Show
September 28: Upper Redesdale Show, Rochester
I am also a big fan of Kirkwhelpington Show on the first Saturday in September, where the food is amazing, and the Humshaugh Fete in June where it is an all day event all over the village - a great day out with the best of local bands, Canny Crack.
