A full programme of events will be announced in the run up to the Show which celebrates the very best of British agriculture and brings together some of the finest animals in the UK if not the world.

Show Director Charles Mills said:

“We are now full steam ahead with planning and organising the 162nd Great Yorkshire Show. We always aim to maintain tradition while bringing in some fresh content, and while farming and agriculture is at the heart of the show we also want to attract families and the next generation to enjoy this iconic Yorkshire event.” 

Over 130,000 visitors and 8,500 animals flock to the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate every year for the three-day show, making it one of the biggest in the UK.

In the judging rings, thousands of animals will compete from cattle to sheep, pigs to pigeons and the show finishes with one of the most prestigious showjumping classes in the country, the Cock O’The North competition.

The 162nd Great Yorkshire Show will be held on Tuesday July 14th to Thursday July 16th 2020.
