Thousands of people made the most of the great Yorkshire Day weather to enjoy a day out at York Maze on 1st August. Many took part in the Straw Bale races and Yorkshire Pudding throwing Competition.

The winners of the Yorkshire Pudding throwing competition was Matt Atkinson from York with a throw of 17.7 metres. In the children’s age category the title was taken by Adam Thompson from Bradford with a massive throw of 15.7 metres. Both winners were presented with Yorkshire Pudding crowns.

Says Tom Pearcy from York Maze, “Once again we have had a fantastic Yorkshire Day at York Maze, celebrating in our own unique fun way all that is best about Yorkshire. The fine weather has certainly brought out the crowds, we had a record number of entrants for the Straw Bale rolling and Yorkshire Pudding tossing. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who joined in and congratulations to the winners.”
