FOR the first time in its 161-year history, a two-part series dedicated to the Great Yorkshire Show is set to be filmed and will air in July.

The Great Yorkshire Show Show, on Channel 5, will be presented by Anita Rani and Jules Hudson with special guests Julian Norton and Peter Wright from The Yorkshire Vet.

Paul Stead, managing director of Leeds-based Daisybeck Studios, who are filming the show, said: “We’re biased of course. but having filmed at The Great Yorkshire Show for Yorkshire Vet specials up to now, we’re thrilled at the chance to produce highlights programmes that capture a much broader array of competitors and contributors.

“We aim to cover the best of the best across livestock and produce as well as featuring crafts and country pursuits on display around the Showground in Harrogate.

“It’s as much about the people and their passions – whether they be animals, cheese, cake, gin or goods made from Yorkshire materials.”

The series will be a celebration of all aspects of the three-day event: animals, mouth-watering food, arts, crafts, outdoor activities, all set against the idyllic backdrop and bustling crowds.

Daisybeck would like to hear from anyone exhibiting at the Show – from showers, growers, furniture makers, pie people, cheese producers and maybe even the next big thing in agricultural technology.

People can contact if they want to get involved.

The 161st Great Yorkshire Show will be held on Tuesday, July 9 to Thursday, July 11 2019.
