Since the last Show in 2019 Falstone Show has seen several changes. Gloria Armstrong – our secretary for the last thirty years confirmed she would be retiring after this years Show. Earlier this year our Treasurer Johnny Carse also resigned his position. They have both given their time and commitment for the benefit of Falstone Show. Sadly in November 2021 the President of Falstone Show, Matthew Festing died while attending the Cathedral in Valletta, Malta. Matthew served the Show well for twenty years.
All vacant positions have been filled.
The future of Falstone Show is in safe hands.
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.
