Great Yorkshire Show tickets to go on sale

Tickets for the 2013 Great Yorkshire Show will go on sale on Friday, 1 March with organisers, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society already planning to make the event as “weatherproof” as possible.

Some £500,000 has been set aside for measures aimed at ensuring that England’s premier agricultural show does not fall victim to bad weather.

Last year the show lost two days after unprecedented wet weather made much of the car parking un-useable.

Dates for this year are Tuesday 9 – Thursday 11 July, and the venue is the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate.
