Why not explore some of the country shows in and around the National Park? From the Haltwhistle Spring Walking Festival to the colourful Alwinton Border Shepherd Show in October, they are an integral and traditional part of the rural calendar.

For generations, these celebrations have brought folk together to discuss their stock, meet friends from distant farms, and take part in the fiercely contested competitions - the best ewe, sheep dog trials, the best raspberry jam, the music and poetry. You'll be welcomed with open arms; so don't miss out on this essential part of Northumberland life.
