Penistone Show 2014 is getting very near. All the last minute preparations are well under way for what is promising to be a great day. This year, there is a new theme to the Show - try it and see. Throughout the Showground there will be lots and lots of Things To Do.
As always we will have our wonderful livestock lines, but this time both the pigs and the sheep will have a live commentary. We are lifting the lid on rare breeds and commercial ones alike, explaining what it is that judges look for, and why some traditional breeds have fallen from favour. Commercial our farmers certainly are, but farming in these high south Pennines has retained many old-fashioned virtues lost elsewhere. We feel it is time the excellence of local production was properly celebrated.
|But that is just the beginning. Be it rural crafts or circus skills, theatre workshops or handling exotic animals, this year's Show visitors can have a go. As always we will have our Cookery Theatre, a recent but deservedly popular innovation, and the face of Artisan Food in Yorkshire. Food stalls of all descriptions throng the Showground, a fabulous display of skill and enterprise.|
Don't forget, unlike other Shows, dogs are welcome at Penistone, (our dog owners are very good about picking up mess), and we have our Companion Dog Show to enter on the day, as well as our respected Lurcher and Terrier classes.
Look through the Schedule for some new Horticulture classes too - the Adult Miniature Garden should produce some masterpieces well worth a look. Children's gardens are back in the Horticulture tent too, and we are hoping for a bumper entry.
Carriage driving, gaining in popularity, is featured this year, and we are looking forward to a strong Heavy Horse entry. Showjumping will take place throughout the day.
