1st September 2019 is the date of the annual Etal Show, one of the oldest small village shows in the county to be still thriving and flourishing, and nowadays so much more than a horticultural show. Known locally as just "The Show", it takes place every year on the first Sunday in September at Etal Showground, opposite the Tillside cricket pitch.
Gates open at 12 noon and the main marquee at 2pm. Here the entries in over 150 different competitive classes are exhibited - including vegetables, fruits, flowers, baking, jams and preserves, needlework, handicrafts, photography, dressed walking sticks and children's classes.
Out on the field there's a whole range of attractions including:
Coldstream Pipe Band 'Have a Go' Dog Agility Course Children's Sports Alnwicky Folk Band Heavy Horses Vintage Vehicles Carousel Bouncy Castle Children's Sports Chainsaw Carving Dispaly Archery Food stalls Beer Tent Tea Tent
There is an admission charge of £4 per person, there is no charge for children and parking is free.
