Show time at the Border Union

Kelso Show

Next week you’ll see horses, cows, sheep, goats, donkeys and Wonky’s at the Border Union Show!

Whats on!

The show starts on Friday 27th with competitions and event judging followed by entertainment in the main ring on Saturday.

We’re bringing some popular bobble hats with us as well as our new range of products which we’re launching online later in the year.  You’ll find us in the exhibition hall keen to hear your feedback on the fresh hat designs, new scarf varieties and our twisted and folded headbands.

The variety of animals, food, clothing, crafts, furniture and agricultural vehicles are fun for all ages to see.  Last year the kids loved sitting on the mowers and gazing up at the huge tractors.  They were also welcome to get into a tiny air cadet plane and pretend to be part of the corps.  We watched the Sheep Show and all had a good laugh at the dancing sheep on the stage, a firm favourite among regular visitors.  Then we hit the craft and exhibition halls where we had a good shop and enjoyed tasting the yummy sweet and savory delights.
