WHITTINGHAM SHOW 2014

Everyone is invited to the historic annual Whittingham Show on Saturday 16 th August – a chance to display your green-fingered expertise, baking skills, photographic flair or just to come along and enjoy the delights of our village show.

The highlight of Whittingham Show is the excellent quality of the entries in the exhibit marquee. The Show attracts some of the best horticulturists in the area, who provide a wonderful display of flowers and vegetables. However a massive contribution to the glories of the exhibit marquee is made by local people with their beautiful works of art, intricate sewing and craft work, delicious baking and superb photographs.

For the first time this year there will be a series of Punch and Judy Shows together with your chance to learn some circus skills and to take part in parachute games and balloon twisting. Ross Macneil will be back to show us his chain saw carving skills and we will be entertained by ‘Few Broth’, a band who specialise in traditional Geordie songs and music –‘Keep Your Feet Still, Geordie Hinney’ and many more of your favourite songs.

As usual the Show will include a wide variety of rural activities – sheep show, dog show and the only Open Athletics Competition in Northumberland. Plus a great variety of stalls and children’s rides.

But don’t just come to watch – have a go – a schedule of competition classes is available from Ian Blakey, 01665 574384 or visit our website www.whittinghamshow.co.uk.

See you all on the 16 th August.
