North Yorkshire Country Show Makes A Comeback

Cowhouse - Beadlam Grange Farm

6:00am 16th June 2013

It is the 35th North Yorkshire County Show today and it is making a comeback after being cancelled last year.

It’s after bad weather in 2012 led to waterlogged fields, which organisers deemed to be dangerous to use. The cancelled show is estimated to have caused losses of around forty-three-thousand pounds. But fundraising and improvements to the site mean there's no chance of that happening again this year.

Organisers say: "There will be many exciting displays and demonstrations, plus a whole range of Main Ring Attractions.  There will be Bungee Trampolines, Traction Engines, Classic Cars & Motorcycles, Cattle, Sheep and Poultry, Rabbits and Ferrets, Children's Inflatable’s, Country Pursuits, Carriage Driving, Horticulture and Produce, Arts, Crafts, Photography, and the Yorkshire Country Women's Association & Children's Classes.

"The Carriages will make a main ring appearance and, there will be the magnificent Grand Parade of Cattle and Class winners followed by vintage agricultural machinery and traction engines.

"Show Jumping will be going on all day in the Show Jumping Ring.  This is on the main show field and there are numerous horse classes and events on the Light Horse throughout the day on the Light Horse Field".

The 35th North Yorkshire County Show will be held at Otterington Hall, between Northallerton and Thirsk on Sunday 16th June this year from 8.00am. For more details visit: http://www.northyorkshireshow.co.uk/
