VISIT THE COUNTRY LIVING PAVILION AT THE GREAT YORKSHIRE SHOW
10-12 JULY 2018, HARROGATE
THE 160TH GREAT YORKSHIRE SHOW will take place in Harrogate this year, celebrating the very best of farming, food and the countryside. More than 130,000 visitors and 8,500 animals flock to the Showground every year for the three-day event, making it one of the biggest of its kind in the UK. This year is all about celebrating the shows spanning the decades since 1838, with a host of special surprises lined up to mark the milestone. As part of this, the organisers have launched a limitededition clothing range, so be sure to get yours before they sell out at greatyorkshireshow.co.uk/shop. Highlights include equestrian dynamo Lorenzo, who will be coming back to the Main Ring with his daredevil bare-back display; chef Rosemary Shrager will whip up an array of dishes in the cookery theatre, while the President’s Lawn is set to showcase some special additions, too.
In the judging rings, animals from cattle to sheep, pigs to pigeons, will compete, and the show finishes with one of the most prestigious showjumping classes in the country, the Cock O’ The North.
From cutting-edge farming equipment and machinery to displays from big-name brands, this is the place where the latest ranges are showcased. While the show has agriculture at its heart, you can also expect to enjoy entertainment, live music and a professional fashion show – including a one-off celebrity special. And there are also great shopping opportunities, including the Country Living Pavilion, which has a collection of stalls showcasing the work of British artisans and craftspeople.
