Great Yorkshire Show 2014

Yesterday was the first day of the 2014 Great Yorkshire Show. The show is England’s premier agricultural event and is based on the 250-acre Great Yorkshire Showground near Harrogate. The Main Ring is the hub of the Show providing a setting for international show jumping and a world class cattle parade. The showground is filled with animals, country demonstrations, have-a-go activities and rural crafts with thousands of visitors expected to visit the show that runs over three days.

During the first day the Countess of Wessex visited the show and met livestock owners and held a Sea Eagle as she visited a number of the demonstrations.

The Great Yorkshire Show first came about in October 1837 when a group of leading agriculturalists, led by the third Earl Spencer, met at the Black Swan Hotel in Coney Street, York to discuss the future of the farming industry.

From this meeting a decision was made to form an organisation – the Yorkshire Agricultural Society – whose aims were to improve and develop agriculture and to hold an annual agricultural show of excellence. The Great Yorkshire Show remains the leading agricultural show in the country.
