Falstone Show 2016 was a WET one to say the least.

Those who did brave the weather
enjoyed the day according to reports.


The last time the weather was this unkind no one can remember.
In 1985 the Show had to relocate to the dam, due to a spell of wet weather before the show day.

The day was rounded off 'still in the pouring rain'
by the auction of produce and Smoking Gunns.
After the bar and band had been relocated into the industrial tent, as the bar was sinking fast. 
Well done to every one who pitched in to make it possible.

Falstone Show to Glastonbury
in the space of a few very wet hours.




Results and photo's will be added to gallery asap - keep checking.

See you all on Saturday 19th August 2017

and we will try again !!

Queens Hall does Falstone Show

Scanning Falstone Show 2013
Gallery One, The Queens Hall, Hexham.         
                        
Saturday 18 January - Saturday 1 March
Free Entry
no booking required
Scanning Falstone Show is a ScanLAB project that has used 3D scanning technology to document the 2013 Falstone Border Shepherds Show, a traditional village event in rural Northumberland.
The project enabled villagers and visitors to experience how this state of the art technology works while also creating a long-term legacy for a show that has been running for over 100 years. This exhibition presents a series of films generated from the scans as well as still images capturing individuals, animals and produce from the show.
Scanning Falstone Show was commissioned by Kielder Art & Architecture with support from Arts Council England, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Queen's Hall Arts.
