A very warm welcome to Whittingham Show 2015.
Firstly, on behalf of the Whittingham Show Committee I would like to thank Eric and Jayne Rogerson for stepping in at very short notice and providing a field for this year’s Show. This year the Show will be held on the field opposite St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church on the road to Glanton - Post Code NE66 4SY.
Whittingham Show has been an established village event since the 1700’s and we must endeavour to maintain this very important village tradition. So, it is with great pleasure that we introduce a new attraction for this year’s Show, a dedicated ‘Children’s Tent’ where there will special activities for children including art and crafts, face painting, pottery, a professional storyteller and lots more.
There is plenty of other entertainment on the Show field with our regular excellent Sheep and Dog Shows, Athletics events and introducing for the first time the thrill and excitement of a Climbing Wall which will be supervised by highly skilled staff. We also have the welcome return of Mark French and his fabulous selection of Birds Of Prey and his stunning Falconry Flying Display.
However Whittingham Show would not be complete without the wonderful local support for the main Exhibition Marquee with its fabulous array of flowers, vegetables, produce, art, crafts and photographs all grown or produced by local people.
My thanks therefore to everyone who has contributed to this year’s Whittingham Show.
Enjoy the Show.
