PRINCESS ROYAL TO VISIT 160TH SHOW
Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal will be a special guest at the 160th Great Yorkshire Show.
Her Royal Highness will visit on Wednesday 11 July, meeting officials, competitors and exhibitors at England’s premier agricultural show at the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate.
The farming and countryside showcase is expected to welcome around 130,000 visitors over the three days to see competitive classes, ranging from cattle to poultry and from international show jumping to cheese.
The event features a host of country skills, such as fly fishing, an extensive Food Hall showcasing regional produce, fashion shows including a Celebrity Special and more than 1,200 stands.
The Princess Royal has visited the show a number of times, most recently in 2014, and will be hosted by Show Director Charles Mills.
Mr Mills said: “We are honoured by Her Royal Highness’s visit and it is always wonderful to welcome a visitor with such a genuine interest in farming and the countryside. We will be able to show the Princess some of the best animals in the country as well as the very best of rural life, food and farming.”
The 160th Great Yorkshire Show will be held on 10th to the 12th July this year at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate.
