22nd June at the Spotted Ox, Tockwith
Tockwith Show President Mick Bell has organised a Charity Fund Raising Night at 8.00pm Saturday 22nd June in aid of his supported charities Hope Pasture Donkey and Horse Sanctuary and Tockwith Church
— A Pig Racing Night! —
Please give this event your whole hearted support. Please see the attached poster for full details.
Many thanks to all of you who turned up to either sell or to buy.
It was a glorious morning which brought the crowds out and gave us our most successful Car Boot Sale to date. With nearly 55 vehicles and a constant stream of buyers I’m sure that most people went home very satisfied.
Thanks must also go to all of the Tockwith Show committee who gave up their time to set up, run and then tidy up the Car Boot Sale site. Special thanks to the girls cooking the bacon and sausages. A permanent queue for the hot sandwiches kept them busy all morning! And finally thanks to Tancred Farm Shop for providing the cooking equipment and the excellent bacon and sausages.
The 2013 show schedules and entry forms are now on the website and available to download.
Please remember that this years show is on Sunday 4th August.

Tickets are available to buy online for this years festival, on May 18th 2013., 12pm till 11pm. Priced just £10 for adults and £3 for children.
Last night, we sold out of our allocation of early bird tickets (adult tickets with 25% off). Huge thanks to everyone who bought them, it really helps the charity out. We’ve already sold significantly more tickets than we did right up until the festival last year, and the majority of those were in the weeks preceding the festival, so with 3 weeks to go still we’re absolutely delighted that our event has proved so popular.
Saying that, we’re not surprised! With the improvements to everything this year. We have some great bands including headliner Fossil Collective, fresh off the back of a stunning debut album and currently selling out dates on their UK tour (they’re destined for the USA shortly after Tockwith). As well as the likes of Leeds based folk outfit Jacobean Ruff, the Gary Stewart Band and Wilful Missing. Along with, Tockwith Festival favourites Raisers and Funky Junk Trio, who will be bringing proceedings to a close after the headliners have finished.
And the beer, wow! We have over 40 real ales this year and more cider than you could possibly wish for! Check out the drink page which we’ve recently updated with a large section of our beer list, the rest, along with the ciders is coming shortly.
So on top of all this, with great food including a Hog Roast and freshly made pizza, workshops to keep the kids occupied and entertainers roaming the site, Tockwith Festival 2013 is set to be an unmissable date in your diary.
Please do buy your tickets in advance (click here), as the event is proving rather popular. And remember it’s all for charity!
May 18th, See you there!

The committee behind one of the region’s most successful village agricultural shows has said farewell to two of its longest serving members.
Tockwith and District Agricultural Society marked the service of Sam Blacker and Sarah Burckhardt at its annual committee and friends dinner attended by over 100 guests.
Mr Blacker stepped down as chairman last November after four years at the helm but will return in 2014 as the show’s president.
The incoming Chairman, Lisa Chasney, said: “Sam has been a supporter of the show all his life, in the early days as a competitor and more recently as a director having served two stints as chairman.
“We owe him a huge debt of gratitude for the enthusiasm, energy and expertise he has brought to the show.”
Sarah has been a committee member and director for over a decade and was the driving force behind developing the show’s farmer’s market.
“Sarah has been a stalwart of the fundraising committee and she will be greatly missed,” added Mrs Chasney.
Tockwith Show will hold its boot sale on May 6.
