Frequently Asked Questions
Tynedale Agricultural Society was resurrected out of the Tyneside Agricultural Society, which began in the early 1800’s. Tynedale Agricultural Society began in 1982 on the same site as the previous show had been since 1948, Tynedale Park at Corbridge.
There are four information points around the showground staffed by volunteers from Churches Together and Willowburn Hospice. Buy your Show Catalogues here, find out what’s on, get directions or ask for help and our wonderful volunteers will assist you.
There is something to suit every taste with a wide range of regional specialities, hand cooked food stalls, public bars and old fashioned tea tents. Buy a catalogue and the map will show you all the great areas to eat and what is available. Try our very popular Street Food next to the Sheep Show.
Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome. Don’t forget your poo bags and dispose of waste.
Centre Barks, Hexham have very knindly sponsored water bowls for dogs which are located at our 3 information points, dog show, gun dog scurry and other locations, however, please come prepared with water in case your dog companion becomes thirsty and needs a drink on the show field and you’re not near one of our information points.
For the safety of the public, the show field animals and your dogs themselves:
ALL DOGS MUST BE KEPT ON A LEAD - no dogs will be allowed in any livestock marquee.
NO DOGS ARE TO BE LEFT IN CARS - checks will be made to ensure the welfare of your pets.
The show ground is a field and then all our volunteers arrive en mass and create this beautiful showground. Please wear suitable footwear as if going for a walk in the country as the ground is uneven and you will be walking on grass, so leave your stillettos at home and come in trainers, wellies or sturdy boots.
PARKING IS FREE - AND WE'VE HAD NOT QUEUES TO GET INTO THE SHOW FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS
There are over 10,000 car park spaces available, to the north and east of the showground, and on the south side of Bywell Bridge, just follow Yellow Show signs showing the blue P in the square for public parking, to get to the show.
