We would like to thank all those who attended last year. Entries and attendance was one of the highest we have seen.

This year, Ross McNeil, the chainsaw carver will return and his creation will be raffled off at the end of the day.

The dry stone waller, Peter Moorhead, will also return to continue his work with the stone generously donated by Durham Stone.

The popular Cheviot Vets Dog Show will return with a full set of classes which start from 2pm.

The Powburn Hill Race will once again start at the earlier time of 11 am from the rear of the marquee. The access road to and from the marquee will be closed from 15 minutes before the race until after the race has finished for the safety of the runners.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors and advertisers, notably NE Concrete and Penny Petroleum for their continued support and to Nigel Dods for the continued use of his field.


If you can spare a couple of hours on Show Day to help – in the caravan, on the gate or in the tea tent – your help would be very much appreciated. The Show Committee is small and we are always grateful for your help. In addition, we are always looking for new people to join the Committee; to offer new ideas and contribute to the organisation. If you can help in any way, please contact any of the committee members.
