The 'Show field' at
Harrison & Hetherington's Newcastleton Auction mart.
Holm Show is a small traditional agricultural event that takes place annually. The show has been proudly running since 1883, having started life as the Eskdale and Liddesdale Show by the then Duke of Buccleuch. The patronage continues with His Grace, Richard, Duke of Buccleuch still holding the honorary position. He succeeded his father who died in 2007, who was always a firm supporter of the event.
The Show is an event that happens at the end of the farming calendar and always on the last Saturday in August.
The show is truly entertaining and consists of a good range of exhibitions, competitions which include livestock, animals and poultry. It is much more than an agricultural show, it is a day out for the family as there are four marquees in which are held the competitions for industrial products & craft, baking, flowers & vegetables, & photography.
Holm Show also includes Crafts demonstrations, such as tapestry and walking stick making.
The Equestrian Section with various competitive classes provides good learning opportunities for young riders. Always popular are the Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling competitions and the amusing Terrier races.
The large vintage vehicle and working machinery display provides much interest.
There will be several new classes in all section of the show.
There are funfair and bouncy castle attractions and this year attractions will be announced soon!.
Trade stands and stalls provide interest and opportunities to purchase items ranging from farm machinery to toys, fancy goods, plants and crafts.
