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 greaty­ork­ 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.
