Great Yorkshire Show
Plans are underway for this very special milestone, to entertain and celebrate 160 shows spanning the decades since 1838. Dates for the next event are Tuesday 10 – Thursday 12 July 2018.
The Great Yorkshire Show will host its 160th edition in 2018 and it’s set to be spectacular!
Over 130,000 visitors and 8,000 animals flock to the Great Yorkshire Showground every year for the three day show, making it one of the biggest in the UK.
Get ready to welcome equestrian dynamo Lorenzo back to the Main Ring with his daredevil bare-back display as one of the 2018 show highlights.
Rosemary Shrager will whip up a storm in the cookery theatre and the President’s Lawn is set to showcase some very special additions for the first time ever.
From cutting edge farming equipment and machinery to displays from big name brands, this is the place where deals are done and the latest ranges are showcased. While the show has agriculture at its heart, there’s also entertainment, shopping, live music, cookery demos and a professional catwalk fashion show – including a one-off celebrity special.
In the judging rings, thousands of animals compete from cattle to sheep, pigs to pigeons and the show finishes with one of the most prestigious show jumping classes in the country, the Cock O’The North competition.
Plans are now underway to celebrate 160 shows spanning the decades since 1838, with a host of special surprises lined up to mark the milestone. As part of this, show organisers are set to launch a limited edition clothing range in the New Year. Look out for a stunning ticket launch in Spring 2018 too!
Expect a host of surprises to celebrate a successful 160 shows and to look forward to the next 160!
The website will be updated with 2018 details during December 2017.
The Great Yorkshire Show is organised by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, a charity working for the countryside
