Crowds will be flocking to the North Tyne this weekend to enjoy the 177th annual Bellingham Show.

The sheep section at the show will once again be hotly contested, with Tynedale’s farmers coming together to battle it out for the top prizes.

A strong showing of dogs will also be at the show with various terrier and hound categories, as well as equine classes for all ages.

The strong agricultural showing will be supported by a variety of activities and entertainment for all ages.

The main ring entertainment will come from Riders of the Storm – described as a unique and exciting equestrian stunt team.

And the fell race is expected to be a hit with runners, while spectators will be able to watch traditional Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling.

As a special treat, visitors will be able to view the North Tyne from the sky, with the chance to fly in a helicopter.

There will be an exclusive cookery demonstrations in the taste marquee, as well as music from Irish country singer Paul Kelly in the bar from 5pm.

Entertainment will also include a fund-raising tractor pull in aid of Stay Strong Stu, vintage vehicles, and the 3SIXTY Bicycle Displays BMX team in the main ring.
