That man with the little Yellow Tractor
Tockwith and District Show Society was founded in 1945. It’s aim was to raise money for the Red Cross to support the personnel at RAF Marston Moor. The 1st Show in 1947 only had 12 helpers but still created a surplus of £58.
Over the years it has progressed from being a purely Horticultural Show to becoming a full Agricultural and Horticultural Show. The attendance in 2007 was estimated to be more than 11,000. This makes it one of the largest one day community events in the area.
The Show Society primarily exists to promote and advance for the benefit and education of the public the practice of agriculture, horticulture, livestock breeding and arts and crafts.
