It was a week to remember for all at the Great Yorkshire Show as the public, exhibitors and organised regained a sense of normality.

The first time in history the show had entertainment and competitions over four days, which welcomed a total of 104,000 – capped at 26,000 a day – instead of the usual 135,000 visitors over three days.

Show Director, Charles Mills said: “This has been such a heart-warming show. It’s been an important step back to normality for everyone and I think we appreciated it all the more after the most difficult 18 months. To welcome our Patron, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall was a day I shall never forget and it was just the tonic we all needed, adding that extra sparkle to the show which we all wanted so much.”

Chief Executive, Nigel Pulling, of Yorkshire Agricultural Society added “It’s always a huge amount of work to stage this event and this year, because of the pandemic, it’s been all the more challenging. We’ve worked closely with North Yorkshire County Council Public Health and Harrogate Borough Council to meet strict criteria to make the event Covid safe and it was terrific to see so many people having such a great day out.”
