Judy Cowan, a member of the show committee, said the break from tradition is very unfortunate but unavoidable and it is hoped that the loyal competitors who enter this annual, very popular village event will be able to take part on the new date.

Bamburgh Village Show has been held on the same date for the past 80 years and the committee intends to return to the original show date, the second Saturday in September, in the future as it was held on this date to commemorate the original Bamburgh Feast.

The 2016 show schedule can be downloaded from the Bamburgh website, www.bamburgh.org.uk, or you can collect a schedule on March 29, from Bamburgh Pavilion from 10am to noon when the potatoes and buckets will be distributed for the potato in a bucket competition.
