The biggest event in the Nidderdale calendar, the Nidderdale Show, returns to Pateley Bridge on Monday, September 23.
Nidderdale Show is a traditional Dales agricultural show where visitors can browse a wonderful display of the finest livestock, produce and crafts that the Dales have to offer.
The annual show, held in the picturesque surrounds of Bewerley Park, Pateley Bridge, is one of the county’s foremost agricultural shows. It regularly attracts crowds of 15,000 and traditionally marks the end of the agricultural show season.
Bewerley Park, Pateley Bridge, HG3 5BD
Nidderdale Show begins at 7.45am with the judging of the Open Equitation class and closes at approximately 5.30-6.00pm with the conclusion of the show jumping competitions.
Trade stands and trade marquees are open from approximately 9.00am to 5.30pm.
Car parking on show day is free.
Bewerley Car Parks – Park & Ride
Free park and ride to and from the Showfield to the Bewerley car parks will be provided using tractor and trailer people carriers. Entry will be through the Bewerley gate and normal admission charges will apply at the turnstiles.
Card payments and onine tickets
These will be accepted at the main gate pedestrian turnstiles and Bewerley gate pedestrian turnstiles. If you have purchased tickets online or would like to pay by debit/credit card on the day, organisers have asked that you use pedestrian turnstiles at either the main gate entrance or Bewerley gate entrance.
Public catering units are sited throughout the Showground, together with public dining marquee and bars.
Public toilet facilities are located throughout the Showground. Public toilets for the disabled can be found at the rear of the public grandstand.
Forward parking is available for Blue Badge holders. Wheelchair accessible toilets are available on site. The site is a green field site with some areas of tarmac and hardcore track, so unfortunately wheelchair access to all areas of the site cannot be guaranteed at all times.
