The Great Yorkshire Show is an iconic three-day event and one of the biggest agricultural events in the English calendar. Every year, more than 130,000 visitors and over 8,500 animals converge on the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate to compete, socialise and celebrate.
This will be the 161st Great Yorkshire Show, showcasing the best of British farming, food and the countryside as well as first class entertainment.
The Longhorn Cattle Society’s National Competition will be at the event for the first time as well as the UK Beef Shorthorn Championships and National Charolais Show.
Sporting Soprano Lizzie Jones will perform in the Main Ring, sculptor Emma Stothard is creating a large-scale installation to celebrate the Showground’s farm shop & café Fodder’s tenth birthday. After last year’s Craven Heifer, the new wow installation will be unveiled on the President’s Lawn and you can already find a flavour of it touring Yorkshire – look out for the #Fodder10Hen coming to a place near you
The Kuoni Catwalk will be bigger and better thanks to a refurbished fashion pavilion which will face into the heart of the Show. Motorbike stunt riding team The Bolddog Lings will entertain crowds while Rosemary Shrager will whip up a storm in the cookery theatres.
In the judging rings, thousands of animals will compete from cattle to sheep, pigs to pigeons and the show finishes with one of the most prestigious showjumping classes in the country, the Cock O’the North.
Cutting edge equipment will be showcased and innovation celebrated with displays from big name farming brands.
The countdown is on – we look forward to welcoming you!
