We would like to say a huge thank you to all who attended our annual Bonfire and Fireworks display on Friday 5th November and for your patience and perseverance in getting to the show field and parked. Our final attendance figures were just over 2,100 people which far exceeded our expectations and smashed all previous records. As such, the event was a sell out and we can not thank you enough for your support. We are also truly grateful to our volunteers and caterers who came and helped on the night, without them, the event would not have taken place. Any proceeds from the event contribute to the running of our annual Show which we are now turning our attention to and hope you can join us again on 7th August 2022.

TOCKWITH SHOW IS BACK IN BUSINESS!
After two years of Covid-enforced absence preparations have now started for next year’s Tockwith and District Agricultural Show – the 75th in the show’s history.
The Show Committee has decided to press ahead with next year’s show – on Sunday August 7th 2022.
We are also planning to stage the annual bonfire and fireworks night for the community on Friday November 5th this year.
Show President Michelle Lee says she is delighted by the committee’s decisions, although she stressed that ensuring the safety of visitors and the event teams would remain an absolute priority.
“No one can predict what will be happening next August – or indeed next month – but we feel that it’s now the right time to hopefully draw a line in the sand and move forward. Staging a major event like this needs months of planning so if we don’t start now it will very quickly become too late to get it off the ground.”
Michelle also said she was delighted at the number of new volunteers who have offered to help with the show.
“The show has been going since 1946 and it has grown to become one of the largest agricultural shows in the region, but we were facing a real crisis over whether we had enough people to ensure it continued: thankfully with the new supporters that is one crisis we have hopefully put behind us and it’s great to see that so many people in the community share our passion and enthusiasm for the event…although there is always room for more!”
“Now our immediate priority is to get the bonfire and fireworks night organised so that people can see that Tockwith Show is back in business, and hopefully when we light that fire on November 5th it will be a beacon of hope that we are moving into more positive times.”
The bonfire and fireworks night will be held on the showfield (see website for location) with the gates opening at 6pm, the fire lit at 6.30pm and the fireworks display at 7pm. Parking will be available on site and there will be hot food and hot drinks on sale. We look forward to seeing you there.
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.
