2023 Show

This year’s Show will take place on Saturday 19th August.

Updated Schedule and timetable will be posted here when available.

Anyone wishing to provide sponsorship, book a trade stand/table in the craft tent or place an advert in the Show Catalogue please contact the secretary.

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, Mule Sheep and ‘Any other breed’, shepherds’ dogs, terriers, hounds, sheep dog trial, vegetables, cakes, eggs, sewing, knitting, sticks, children’s work, homemade drinks, photography, children’s and adult’s sports, fell race, quoits, pony sports and jumping. Each year there are special classes added, look out of those linked to The King’s Coronation.

Since 2019 Falstone Show has seen several changes. Gloria Armstrong – our secretary for the last thirty years has retired. 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 positions have been filled.

The future of Falstone Show is in safe hands.

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.
