Tockwith Show The Tockwith Show ranks as one of Yorkshire’s most popular agricultural and horticultural shows, and is one of the largest community events for many miles, bringing in crowds of up to 10,000 people. Now in its 73rd year, the Show was started after World War II in 1946, with the aim of raising money for the Red Cross and to support the personnel at RAF Marston Moor. Nowadays the Show is a wonderful day out for all the family, with a central show ring surrounded by stalls of all types along with huge marquees housing Art & Crafts, Local Farmers’ Market produce, Fur, Fowl & Feather exhibitions, Flower Shows, Children’s Discovery Zone, a Church, Blacksmiths and Farriers at work, parades of vintage tractors, Archery, Prize rings for sheep, pigs and cattle, Tug-of-War battles, band stands and – of course – plenty of horse and pony events. The Tockwith Show is on the outskirts of the village of Tockwith, midway between Harrogate and York Please note that this is not an organised MacKenzie event merely a suggestion for an opportunity to see a different aspect of Yorkshire life. Home Club Members will be there to meet up with for the afternoon.
