2016 Other Show Attractions
Yorkshire Rows boat to make special appearance at Tockwith Show
The boat which carried four intrepid Yorkshire women across the Atlantic will be on show at this year’s Tockwith Show! They have got some steps so people can see inside and understand just how small a space they lived in for those 67 days. There are boards explaining the construction of the boat and they will be talking to people about the boat and the journey.”
The Discovery Zone!
As in previous years, the Discovery Zone at Tockwith Show will feature crafts with a rural theme which children (and adults!!) will be encouraged to participate in.
Taking part this year are the very popular Yorkshire Hurdles who demonstrate their art of hurdle making and encourage families to make small examples using hazel coppice.
York Feltmakers teach felt making skills turning raw wool into small animals, puppets, book covers etc., with children taking the finished articles home with them.
Hatch it! Live chick hatchings throughout the day (hopefully) plus educational info on the hatching process.
NEW! Chevin Bee Friends promoting the conservation of all species of bees including Honey Bees, Bumblebees and Solitary Bees.
All aspects of the Discovery Zone (and breadmaking in the farmers market marquee) are free to everyone who wishes to have a go!!
