A bumper crowd is expected at the 157th Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate this July.

The show was a key part of the Harrogate district’s super summer of 2014, starting just two days after the Tour de France came to town.

And, with tickets now on sale, excitement is building for the 2015 event, where organisers the Yorkshire Agricultural Society hope to welcome more than 130,000 people.

The show will run from Tuesday, July 14 to Thursday, July 16, and will mark the tenth - and final - appearance as Honorary Show Director for Bill Cowling.

A statement by organisers said of the show: “It will be particularly poignant as Bill Cowling steps down from the “top job” on the last day.

“Some 12,000 entries across the competitive classes form the backbone to the farming showcase, from champion bulls to rabbits to poultry.

“Heading the Main Ring programme this year will be the fast and furious Shetland Pony Grand National which sees youngsters race head to head on their speedy mini mounts around the arena.”

Elsewhere, visitors will find demonstrations of country skills, fashion shows, exhibitions of regional food and drink and exciting ring displays.
