It's the County Show tomorrow!

I have been at the site for the Northumberland County Show tonight, to have a look at how preparations are going - and it is clear tomorrow is going to spectacular. There is no better way to spend your Bank Holiday Monday!
As well as all the traditional sights of  Cattle, Sheep, Horses, Goats, Poultry, Rabbits, and Dogs (not to mention the Alpacas), there will be:
  • The Journal 'TASTE' event with top North East Chefs
  • 300 Stands to visit
  • Falconry displays
  • Grand Parade of Livestock
  • Spectacular Main Arena Acts
  • Full working Milking Parlour
  • Horse Shoeing Demonstration
  • Live Music
  • Meet the Hounds
  • Beekeeping demonstration
  • Funfair
  • Stick dressing and hedgelaying demonstrations
The show opens to the public at 9 am and closes at 6pm. Parking is free. Tickets for Adults are £12 and for children up to 16 they are just £3. Tickets can be purchased at the gate.

I am judging tomorrow and hope to see you there!

The show will be held at Bywell near Stocksfield - NE43 7AB.  THE SHOW WILL BE SIGNPOSTED BY THE AA (YELLOW) FROM THE A69 AND A68 TRUNK ROADS.
