Penistone Show 2014 is getting very near. Have you booked your tickets? If not, you only have two weeks before the online booking closes.
This year, more than ever, there will be lots to do as well as lots to see, particularly for youngsters.
We are featuring Circus Skills, handling Exotic Animals, Theatre Workshops and Crafts, all included in the ticket price.
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. Our programme celebrates the Whitefaced Woodland and pedigree Texels, one rare and one highly commercial. 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.
Check out the schedule for classes to enter. Adult Miniature Gardens are new for this year, so expect some masterpieces.
Fancy milking or sheep shearing? Penistone Young Farmers will be letting you 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.
Carriage Driving is back after some years, see our Driving Judge's Story in the programme. Native breeds and Heavy horses will be well represented and Showjumping will take place throughout the day.
Saturday, 13th September - for the very best deals, book your tickets online today.
