75th Tockwith and District Agricultural Show
Santuario http://amastic.co.uk/plug/collect/aspcms_collectfun.asp TOCKWITH SHOW IS BACK IN BUSINESS!
After two years of Covid-enforced absence plans have now started to prepare for next year’s – and the 75th – Tockwith and District Agricultural Show.
The Show Committee have decided to press ahead with the preparation for next year’s show – on Sunday August 7th 2022…and are also planning to stage their 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 decision, 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.
