Statement from Great Yorkshire Show
After 3 months of unprecedented rainfall we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel the Great Yorkshire Show on the evening of the first day; after suffering a further 30 minute deluge this afternoon. Sadly the car parks cannot now be used to park cars safely and so we simply can’t continue. This is a heartbreaking decision for everyone who loves the Great Yorkshire Show and is involved in making it so special.
Visitors - refunds will be issued for visitors who have bought tickets in advance, please send your tickets back to us with your name and address and we will organise refunds as soon as we can. Or alternatively you can keep the tickets and use them for the 2013 Great Yorkshire Show.
Membership – we hope our members will continue to support the Yorkshire Agricultural Society through this difficult period.
Livestock -we will be in contact with all livestock exhibitors and refund all entries fees for events that have not taken place.
Tradestand – we will be in touch with all tradestand holders shortly.
Sponsors – we will be in touch with all our sponsors shortly.
