The 114th Farndale Show will take place on August Bank Holiday Monday.

While Farndale is one of the smaller shows in the County, it is a traditional Dales Show which always punches above its weight both in terms of exhibits and visitors. It is held in beautiful surroundings nestling in a green valley surrounded by heather clad moorland at the heart of the North York Moors National Park.

The show features ever thing you would expect from an agricultural, horticultural and industrial show.

Agricultural sections include Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Farm Produce and Stick Dressing while the Equestrian Classes include both Ridden and In Hand classes as well as a Gymkhana.

There is a Fur and Feather Marquee with Rabbit, Cavies, and Pigeons and in the Horticultural Marquee Flowers, Plants and Vegetables.

A spokesperson said: "In one of our traditional canvas marquees there are fine examples of Home Baking, eggs and preserves, hotly contested photo classes, Art and crafts with separate sections for Children and the WI & YCA.

"Our main ring attraction this year is Philippa Williams with her gun dog display as regularly seen at Crufts, the Ryedale Tug of War competition and a Vintage vehicle parade.

"This year we have newly expanded pet dog competitions, Children’s races, including our unique hobby horse race, fancy dress, and the Commondale wool spinners. With Entertainment provided by Bilsdale Silver band, the Jelly Roll jazz band and Bertzerkaz circus Skills not to mention our largest number of trade stand yet.

"We have catering in both main show fields including some Artisan Street food and the Feversham Arms Inn is just opposite the main entrance to the Show ground. There will be a flower festival in St Mary’s Church just down the road, a little haven of peace and tranquillity."

The famous Farndale Calendar will be launched at the show which raises money for Farndale Village Hall.

The spokesperson added: "This year’s show promises to be one of the best yet with many new classes introduced across the show and the best news is we have held our prices at the pre Covid level of £5 for Adults, £1 for Children with under 5’s Free. Car parking on the show fields is just £3 with Free parking nearby. This year we will be taking Cash and cards on all gates."

"It is truly a great day out for the whole family."
