This video tells the story of the history of a very well known song from our school town called Blaydon; The Blaydon Races.
Back in 1862 the Blaydon Races was officially a horse race. Today it is still gong, but now it is a running road race. It takes place every year on June 9th.
The song is always sung at our local football clubs matches – Newcastle United.
