The Greatest Small Show In Yorkshire!

 The 75th Tockwith Show

Will Take Place On

 Sunday August 2nd 2020

After an inspection this morning and with the threat of more rain to come it has been decided (regrettably) to cancel this year’s Bonfire and Firework Display. The main concern was in getting people off the carpark in such wet conditions and in the dark. It was felt that there was too much risk to people and vehicles if cars were needed to be towed off after becoming bogged down, which given the conditions was very likely. Damage to the Alton’s field was also a concern.

Tockwith and District Show Society was founded in 1945. It’s aim was to raise money for the Red Cross to support the personnel at RAF Marston Moor. The 1st Show in 1946 only had 12 helpers but still created a surplus of £58.

Over the years it has progressed from being a purely Horticultural Show to becoming a full Agricultural and Horticultural Show. The attendance in 2007 was estimated to be more than 11,000. This makes it one of the largest one day community events in the area.

The Show Society primarily exists to promote and advance for the benefit and education of the public the practice of agriculture, horticulture, livestock breeding and arts and crafts.
