Date Announced for 2014 Malton Show
11:56am 22nd October 2013
Malton Show will take place in June next year, on a new earlier show date the organisers have announced.
Next year’s show will take place on Sunday, June 29, at Scampston Park, around 4.5 miles east of Malton, where the show has taken place since 1998.
The 2013 show was held on July 14, so the new date is around three weeks earlier in the summer show season.
The show committee has decided on the earlier date to make Malton the first show in the local show season.
Show committee chairman Michael Cleary said: “We want the Malton Show to provide a great day for families, local people and visitors, and of course we want top quality livestock to make our traditional agricultural classes some of the best in the country.
“We are moving the show forward into June to make Malton Show one of the earliest in North Yorkshire, and we can attract more top quality livestock entries.
“The Malton Show has been running since 1833 and we hope it will be going for at least as long again. We are very grateful to everyone who has supported us in 2013 and over the years – the volunteers, stewards, competitors and visitors – and we hope they’ll be able to come along in June and enjoy the show once more."
