Simonside Country Fair 2015 @ Forestburngate
9th August 11am
As usual we will be starting with the Car Boot Sale in the morning from 11am and Grand Parade with Rothbury Highland Pipe Band following at midday. This year we have lots of exciting entertainment throughout the afternoon particularly for the children: A Children’s Funfair; Test Your Strength; Punch and Judy; Face-painting and Loom Bands; a very special visit from the wonderful Kirkley Hall Zoo; children’s games and Fancy Dress; our unique World Championship Egg-throwing Competition – and lots of fantastic competitions in the Make, Bake and Grow Show marquee for children and adults. We are also welcoming our canine friends the Northern Inuit Breed Show, a new Lurcher Show, our local Hounds – along with all our regular Dog Agility friends. The Dressed Sticks Show includes a handmade dressed stick auction by sealed bids (in advance at “The Gate” pub or on the day) with a valuable top prize stick.
