Family fun with a historical flavour at the Etal Horticultural Show

Etal Horticultural Show is shaping up to be a very special event this year and a great afternoon out for all the family.

The event, to be held on Sunday, September 2, will feature the traditional and much-loved exhibition of flowers, vegetables, handicrafts and artwork within the marquee. Many of the flowers and other produce will be auctioned at around 4.30pm.

Other entertainment on the day includes music by Wooler’s Steel Quake, craft and charity stalls, children’s carousel and bouncy castle.

The Companion Dog Show, with both obedience and ‘fun’ classes, is open to all and entries can be made on the day from 12.30pm.

There will also be the traditional quoits competition, vintage agricultural vehicles, archery and much more.

This year’s event will have a historical flavour with a live re-enactment on the field and other themed activities led by the Flodden and 16th Century Living History group.

The show starts at 1pm with the marquee opening at around 2pm.

Entry at the gate is £3 for adults and £1 for children, parking is free.
