ONE of the region’s most popular annual country events takers place today.

The Glendale Show, near Wooler in Northumberland, is expected to attract more than 15,000 visitors.

Among the highlights expected to draw in the crowds this year are the livestock parade and the 3Sixty Bicycle Display Team.

The Devil’s Horsemen, one of Europe’s leading equestrian stunt teams, will also be on show.

Show secretary Rachael Smith said: “This year we have attracted more livestock entries than has been seen in many years and the most ever trade stands, so it really is a fantastic event and rural showcase.

“The livestock parade is going to be a major feature as this year for the first time for decades we have a pair of Clydesdale horses.

“So, we are all hoping that as in previous years, we will attract people from across the region to what really is a great day out for all of the family.”

The event will also feature a horticultural and industrial tent with thousands of prize winning flowers, fruit and vegetables, homemade produce, baking and handicrafts.

There will also be live music and the countryside marquee focusing on education and traditional rural skills. The ever-popular food marquee will again be showcasing culinary delights from across the region this year.
