    My sister was here for the Show last year and she wrote a blog entry for her website. I thought folk may like to read what a deep southerner thought about it:

    Above and beyond
    There are village shows and then there’s Whalton Village Show, which fair to say was more than a bit unexpected. You couldn’t deny the pedigree of the Daimler Dart SP250 or indeed the contingent of immaculate E-Types, nor the impressive skills of the English National Sheepdog Champion – Meg and her man Ben Smith – which put normal folk to shame in the dog-training department. It was certainly a surprise to find of a perfect first edition Margaret Attwood for 25p (£30 on Amazon plus P&P) and, courtesy of the Barbour stall, a quilted jacket at a real bargain price.

    It was impossible not to smile at the sheer silliness of the sheep racing – they each have their own toy jockey you know – and to be humbled by the power of a bunch of kids from in the Kampala and Masaka districts of Uganda who make up the most vibrant Pearl of Africa choir.

    Yes, definitely an eclectic mix of things going on but also the quintessential village show stuff too – waggy tail competition (dogs), WI cakes (major yum) and the marrow competition (not altogether clear how that gets judged). Sitting in the sunshine listening to the Colliery Band with a cup of tea and watching the people’s faces light up at the sheer pleasantness of the occasion was a delight. What more could you ask of a village show and a £6 entry price – well rather a lot as it happened, this was Whalton’s altogether unexpected and so much more version.

    We are looking forward to coming to your show with our 3 Bloodhounds and 3 Basset Hounds after hearing how good your show was last year and hope it will be ok to bring our hounds?
    Good luck and thank you to everyone who volunteers their time to keep up a lovely tradition for us all to enjoy.

    I am planning to attend the classic car show on Saturday in my red 1992 Lancia Delta HF integrale Evo 1. What time should we be there? How many cars are you expecting ?

  5. Dave says:

    I have been told about this show and fancy coming along in my classic Car.
    Strange to see that the entry form is in PDF format. I really don’t like to use these files.
    Maybe consider a web form entry for future events.

  6. Helen Baird says:

    This is a smashing show!
    In previous years the RSPCA NEWCASTLE AND NORTHUMBERLAND BRANCH have had a stall here-but last year and this year we have brought our dogs along instead.
    This is a day out for them-getting them out of the kennels -meeting and greeting humans and dogs-entering them in the dog show classes where applicable -just a fun day out. But – you never know – they might meet there future owner/home for life.
    Well done to all involved -hope it’s a good day

    I would like to say that my grandson who is twelve and myself had a wonderful time at the show as well as winning a few prizes in the dog events. photography and wood craft. The organisers where very friendly and helpful and there was always something going on or something to do. Only thing I regret was I didn’t get back to taste the wallnut cake I spied in the school hall on the way in. We will certainly be back next year. Alan & Lewis
