There will be attractions galore at an event on Saturday that is among the most popular of its type in Northumberland.

New to Whalton Village Show this year is a fully costumed display of Wild West horsemanship from Les Amis d’Onno’s Cactus Djake and the Western Circus and a turnip-tossing tournament.

As well as enjoying the eye-catching sheep racing, classic cars and Boots the fortune-telling goat, those who come along can bring their dewy-eyed dog for the dog show.

There will also be music from Northumbria pipers and the KEVI (King Edward VI School) Steel Band, a book fair, small animals to pet, face-painting, a range of tasty treats – including home-made cakes – games and races for children, trade stands and entries for the traditional show categories to view in the village hall.

The event will run from 11am to 5pm.
