Northumberland College was proud to support the Northumberland County Show as it made its return after a two-year break due to the Covid pandemic.
Crowds flocked to the much-loved agricultural event at the showground Bywell, near Stocksfield, which was held over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of a fun-filled day out in the countryside.
Attractions included hundreds of competitive livestock classes for horses, cattle, sheep, alpacas, pigs, goats, fur and feather, baking and home crafts and many more, with the college picking up first prize in the Non-Agricultural Outdoor Trade Stand category judged by Mark Wroe, Bishop of Berwick.
Live music was provided by brass bands, Piping Vikings, Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers Highland Pipers and an Open Mic area which hosted a variety of musicians, and the entertainment continued in the main arena with the Newcastle Diamonds Speedway team showing off high speed motorcycle skills.
