Malton Show to be earlier next year
4:40pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
ONE of North Yorkshire’s big agricultural shows is to be rescheduled next year.
Malton Show will take place about three weeks earlier than the traditional date and will be held on June 29 instead of mid-July.
The committee has decided on the earlier date to make the event one of the first in the local show season.
Show committee chairman Michael Cleary said: “We want the Malton Show to provide a great day for families, local people and visitors, and of course we want top quality livestock to make our traditional agricultural classes some of the best in the country.
“We are moving the show forward into June to make Malton Show one of the earliest in North Yorkshire, and we can attract more top quality livestock entries.”
He added: “The Malton Show has been running since 1833 and we hope it will be going for at least as long again.”
