We're delighted to be hosting the Piping Competitions & Traditional Music tent for Bellingham Show's 175th year!  

The show takes place on 26th August 2017 and will draw in crowds from across the North East to enjoy live bands, livestock judging, terrier racing, children’s activities, traditional games, wrestlingNorthumbrian piping, vintage vehicles, dog show, fell racing and much, much more.

The piping competitions have been an important feature of the show for the greater part of two centuries.  With Northumbrian music a central part of our heritage, we wish to maintain this treasured feature of the Bellingham Show, celebrating the regional significance of our Northumbrian piping, song and tune traditions.
