The committee of Tockwith Show has invited the volunteers of Tockwith Festival to run the bar at this year’s show on Sunday, August 6.
The Festival team members – who have run their successful, family-friendly beer and music festival in the village for almost a decade – will serve up drinks to thirsty visitors throughout the day, including ales, ciders and Pimm’s. All the proceeds from the bar will then be added to their funds from the beer festival, which are distributed to organisations and projects across the Tockwith area.
Tockwith Festival trustee Adrian Ray said: “We’ve been keen to work with Tockwith Show for a number of years because our aims and theirs are so closely aligned.
“Both organisations aim to offer a great event for local people and visitors, and to support other groups in the Tockwith district too. What makes this partnership even better is that we’ll be selling beer from Rudgate Brewery, which is just half a mile from the Tockwith Show Field.”
Low food miles have been prioritised by the Tockwith Show committee for a number of years, with an emphasis on produce from the surrounding area. This includes numerous local businesses in the Farmer’s Market marquee, selling everything from pies and meats to home-made cakes and tea, and catering in the Members’ tent by Ainsty Farm Shop.
In the last few years, Tockwith Festival has given grants to organisations including Tockwith Scouts, Tockwith Players and Springbank Surgery, which was raising funds for a new mobile ultrasound scanner – a project to which Tockwith Show also made a contribution.
Sam Blacker, co-chairman of the Tockwith Show committee, said: “For a number of years, we’ve had commercial organisations running the bar for us.
“While they’ve always been local and provided a good service, the profits have gone back to the company. It’s great to have the team from the festival on board not only to run the bar for us, but also to keep that money close to home.
“Along with reducing food miles, one of our priorities is to keep prices low for our visitors. With low-cost pitches, all our food and drink providers – including the bar – are able to keep their prices down to make Tockwith Show a really affordable day out for all the family.”
Tockwith Show takes place on Sunday, August 6 on the show field at Cattal Moor Lane, Tockwith, YO26 7QH. Tickets at £10 per person are available on the gate – or buy online in advance for a 20 per cent saving at www.tockwithshow.org.uk. Under 16s go free.

We had decided to get an early start as we were looking to catch the 15.14 train out of Prestatyn and we had 12.5 miles to cover. We woke to cloud cover on the hills and a much cooler morning. We got a good start with the first climb of the day dispatched before the sun broke through the clouds. from then it was the last 3 days repeated with warm water and steep climbs and descents. We eventually reached the outskirts of Prestatyn but still had 1.5 miles to reach the beach and the monument at the end of the walk. Unfortunately the tide was a long way out so there was no dipping of toes in the sea. A quick ice cream, a half mile dash along the sea front to pick up our cases and a quick taxi ride back to the station left us 15 minutes before the train arrived (or didn’t!). The weather was taking it’s toll on the rails and several delays later we eventually met up with Sam’s daughter Claire at Crewe station.
We stocked up well with water and were taxied back to yesterdays finish point at the Clwyd Gate restaurant. The sun was blazing, sun tan cream liberably applied and a 300 metre climb was our introduction to the day. On paper it was only 11.5 miles but it consisted of several steep climbs followed by steep decents. It wasn’t long before the water turned warm and shirts were dripping with sweat. Not much else to say other than it was a long hot slow day. We finished at Bodfari and were picked up by our B&B host. An 86 year old lady who thought nothing of driving on the wrong side of the road and slamming her brakes on down the narrow lanes. Sam gets the award for bravery on this trip as he was always the one in the front seat of the transfers whilst I wa always in the back with eyes firmly closed. The B&B was a very old, slightly run down farm house that Lloyd George had once stayed at.
