The show is a traditional Borders Show with sheep classes for Northumbrian Blackface, Scottish Blackface, Blue Faced Leicester, North Country Cheviot, South Country Cheviot, Jacobs, Mules and Crossbreds. In 2012 we've added a class for Children to compete.
In the marquee, classes in the Horticultural and Industrial section are judged with trophies and prizes awarded for Flowers, Floral Art, Vegetables, Needlework, Fleece, Spinning, Photography, Adult Craft, Adult Art, Creative Writing, Jams & Chutneys, Baking, Eggs and Baking Gone Wrong. There are Children's Classes for all age groups
The Show awards 30 Trophies, 2 Book Tokens and a Chairman's Special Prize. each year. Most of these trophies have been donated to the Show and form part of the history of Harbottle Show. Click on the trophy icon below, or the shedule button, select a trophy, then select any of the "linked" trophies to access their history page.. If you would like to donate or present a prize, please contact the secretary via the contacts page.
The Show is organised by a committee of volunteers who meet throughout the year in the Village Hall. Quiz Nights, Car Treasure Hunt, Duck Races and Bring & Buy Sales and the infamous 'Cow Pat Sunday' all contribute to the show funds. Your support is vital to ensure small country shows like Harbottle continue!
