Show celebrates 90th birthday

Young and old alike will be treated to a fun-filled day at Glanton Show tomorrow, which this year celebrates its 90th birthday.

There are some special classes this year too, including iced-cake and floral arrangement, to honour the nine decade milestone.

The show tent is one of the main attractions and there are some beginners’ classes in the horticultural section.

Other classes include art and photography – including a photo of a feature of Glanton – and a host of children’s categories.

Plenty of fun is on offer outside of the tent too.

The sheepdog trial starts in the morning at Hemmel Field, followed by the hill race and pony sports at 1.30pm.

Last year’s fell run, which was revived for the 2012 show, attracted 35 competitors and the committee is hoping for even more this time round.

The dog show (pedigrees/mutts welcome) starts at 2pm.

There will also be refreshments, classic car and birds of prey in flight display, stalls, sports, bouncy castle and face-painting as well as an exhibition of chainsaw sculpting.

The sheep show has been cancelled due to lack of entries.
