Powburn Show to Go Ahead in 2022

Powburn Show 2022

Further to our recent statement that the future of the Powburn Show was under threat, we’re pleased to now announce that several people have come forward to take on new roles in the Powburn Show Committee. As a result…

The Powburn Show 2022 will go ahead!

Saturday 6 August 2022

This is great news! The pandemic has prevented most county shows taking place for the past two years. So, this is a wonderful opportunity to reaffirm our sense of community, our sense of belonging to north Northumberland and our sense of family values. In sum, we can both refresh and add to our local heritage.


Many thanks to those who have agreed to help. Your willingness and enthusiasm is very much appreciated.

Would you like to get involved?

If you would like to help the Powburn Show 2022 in any way (you don’t have to join the Committee), then please get in touch. We’re always pleased to speak to anyone who might be able to help on the day of the Show, for example.

  1. Hi 😊
    I am hoping someone can help me.
    We moved in to the area (West Hedgeley)
    We want to enter some of the classes in the Powburn Show, but am not sure on requirements,
    Mainly the walking stick classes
    110. Novice
    111. Plain walking stick, wood
    112. Fancy walking stick, wood

    Does β€œ walking stick” cover the long walking sticks used for hill walking ect.
    If we enter the novice class, can we also enter one of the other classes with the same stick, ie the fancy walking stick wood headed.

    I’m sorry if these seem daft questions but we have never entered this type of show before, 😊

    I have had a look to see if I could find some pictures in previous show but not had any luck.

    Thank you for you help 😊

    Kind regards Hannah

  2. Hello Hannah,
    Sorry for the delay in responding (been away for 2 weeks). I personally don’t know the answer to your questions. However, the Industrial Secretary, Julia Smith would perhaps be the person to contact. Unfortunately, I don’t currently have a contact address for her. However, if you take a look at the Contacts Page at https://www.powburnshow.com/contact/ you could try contacting the Chair of the Committee, Victoria Bell or the Sponsors Secretary, May Wilson. [There is just one (small) photo of walking sticks in the 2016 Gallery at https://www.powburnshow.com/gallery/album-2016/ I hope this helps. Best wishes!
