On the Lookout for Ladies with a Flair for Fashion

Glendale Show being held on August Bank Holiday Monday launches a competition for the “Best Dressed Lady”

To celebrate and highlight the important roles women play in agricultural and rural industries, The Glendale Agricultural Society have this year chosen the theme, ‘The Year of the Lady’.  

One of the initiatives as part of this year’s theme, at the Glendale Show on Monday 29th August, is ‘The Best Dressed Lady Competition’ sponsored by the recently opened home interior design and gift shop, Stephanie Louise Designs.  Gift vouchers have been kindly donated by Stephanie Tait which will be presented to the Best Dressed Lady and Runner up.

The undisclosed judges will be scouring the show-field, for stylish ladies who catch their eye.  Judges will be handing out golden envelopes inviting the shortlisted candidates into the main ring for the final judging.

23 year old Stephanie, who has recently graduated from Newcastle College after completing a course in Textiles and Interior Design, tells us what she thinks the judges will be looking for:

“Having been born and brought up in Wooler and recently opening my Interior Design shop I am delighted to sponsor The Best Dressed Lady Competition.  There are no rules or regulations in this competition, but I am sure the judges will be looking for people who have a flair for fashion, elegant perhaps and of course in keeping and appropriate for The Glendale Show.”

The Glendale Agricultural Society’s annual Show is the largest show and rural event in North Northumberland.  It encompasses a range of exhibitions, events, activities and displays with many focussing on farming and the countryside.

With the backdrop of the Cheviot Hills and access directly from the A697, the show provides a stunningly picturesque and fun day out for people of all ages.  Dogs are welcome and their owners can enter them in the Companion Dog Show on the day, with entries taken from 12 noon onwards.

The gates for Glendale Show open at 9am on Bank Holiday Monday August 29th.  Tickets can be purchased online in advance at a reduced rate. For general information please visit or contact Show Secretary, Rachael Tait on 01668 283868 or email
