    New Venue for 2007 for Tockwith Show

Following the recent wet weather, the 2007 Tockwith Show on Saturday 4 August will be held at the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, rather than its own venue.
Tockwith Show

Nigel Pulling, Chief Executive of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society owners of the site said: “We were approached by the Tockwith & District Show Society and were delighted to be able to help. So many shows have had to be cancelled because of the rain, which is disappointing to visitors and exhibitors, as well as to the organisers. We are in a position to help and are very happy to do so, and are looking forward to working with the Tockwith team.”

Mr Les Wake, Honorary Secretary of Tockwith said: “We wanted people to enjoy the show and didn’t want it to become another casualty of the weather. The Great Yorkshire Showground has permanent roads and a good deal of hard standing, plus a lot has been spent on drainage whereas our field has suffered greatly from the rain.”

He added: This is a “one off” and next year’s show will be back at Tockwith. The gates open at 8.30am and ticket prices are £5 for adults and there is free entry for under 16s.
