The Roberton Show is held annually on the first Saturday in September in Roberton. For 2017, it's at The Snoot Field with the kind permission of Graham Bell and Anthony Scott-Noble . It is a chance for people from the Valley (and beyond) to get together to enjoy a great afternoon that has something for all the family. From the tea/cake tent to the beer tent, from "whack-a-rat" to "under 10's races", from "Best Hill Cheviot" to "Best Pen of 2 Prime Lambs", from "Best Cabbage" to "Best Flower Arrangement in a Cup and Saucer", There really is something for everyone.
