The Show is a friendly and welcoming public event exhibiting the livestock, working animals, skills and sports associated with local agriculture and the community. This traditional rural event also includes activities for children, trade stands, competitions, food & drink and entertainment.

The Falstone Border Shepherds’ Show was established in 1885, but reluctantly had to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to restrictions and uncertainty as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The Show Committee thank everyone for their past, current and continuing help and support. Held in Falstone Northumberland each August, the Show includes classes for Blackfaced, Swaledale Cross and Mule Sheep, Texels, shepherds’ dogs, terriers, hounds, vegetables, cakes, eggs, sewing, knitting, sticks, children’s work, children’s and adult’s sports, fell race, homemade drinks, sheep dog trial, photography, pony sports and jumping. Each year there are special classes added.

The Schedule comprising the list of classes, requirements, prizes and rules, and the entry form are published in early summer. Entries and fees, subject to the Rules of the Show, need to be received by the last Monday in July. The Show timetable is published in advance of the Show Day to confirm when exhibits need to be placed and when they can be removed. A full list of Cups and Special Prizes is printed in the Show Catalogue, available to purchase at the Show.
