Pastoral Society

Agricultural Show

Ewes, lambs and tups, Shepherds and Farmers from miles around compete for a large number of cups on the day. The Cattle Competition, for a field with 20 cows with calves at foot, is judged on-farm in advance, with the winner announced on the day. In the Cattle Haugh at the other side of the Whiteadder Bridge the Dog Trials are held, with the first trial starting at 9.00 a.m. Sheep showing and judging starts at 10.00 in the morning.

If all this hard work sparks your appetite, why not indulge in a bacon buttie or lavish lunch by C&G Catering or have a wee dram at the bar. Cup presentations start at 2.00 pm. After this there is usually great hilarity and, no doubt, chaos at the Terrier racing.

All together it’s quite a sight, this big white tent shining at the foot of the Whiteadder Bridge, with the pens of sheep, Vintage tractors, Stationary engines, colourful stands and Car-Boots spread over the Show Haugh. The large Bouncy Castles for the kids complete the festive display.

Come and visit, we would love to welcome you to our little Show. If you can’t make it during the day, from 8.00 pm till late we have the Show Dance. £5.00 a ticket gives you a free Hog Roast, a live band and bar.
