When we start to think about the next Penistone Show – about two days after the last one – we always wonder what we could do better this time.  Penistone Show 2014 was fine in more ways than one, with good weather, a great turnout, super stock displays and something to interest everyone, from the smallest toddler up.  But, when we totted up the figures, we made a slight loss.  As each Show is financed entirely through profits made in previous years, that gave us all a bit of a fright. 

Jeff Pears, our current President, is a businessman who is determined to help us reduce costs where we can, without sacrificing the quality of the Show.  So with this in mind we are turning our attention to sponsorship. 



Our new Show Secretary, Rebecca Barnett, has taken to the job like a duck to water, and she is busy with organisation, paperwork and the many other jobs she is asked to do.

We also ave a small group of people who are looking at launching new sponsorship packages. At the top we are seeking corporate sponsors, willing to sponsor sections of the Show, from the main ring to the Cattle, Horticulture, or one of the many other interesting and visible attractions.  In return they will receive advertising and, if they wish, entertainment packages tailored to suit. 

But we are also looking for individual sponsors, perhaps of children’s classes in Homecraft, or Livestock sections.  Many of our existing sponsors support us in memory of a loved one, and our trophies often have histories relating to Penistone people down the years.  If you are interested, let us know.  There’s something for everyone. 


Now, horses are a big part of Penistone Show and our association with the Yorkshire Shire Hiring Society has brought an influx of heavy breeds.  Renewed interest in the big boys means that we are seeing anything from a Clydesdale to a Percheron at the Show, and a new class caters for them all.  Any Other Recognised Heavy Horse Breed, in fact, which should be fascinating for everyone.  Our Show Jumping is being reorganised too, with new practice and collection areas, as well as new classes.  The sport is always evolving and we like to think that at Penistone we keep well up to date.

Everyone’s heart lifts as summer begins.  We hope for some lovely months ahead, but as you garden, or tend livestock, create artwork or find new recipes, remember that come September, you can showcase all that at Penistone Show.
