One of Yorkshire’s most popular rural events reaches a landmark birthday

If proof is needed of the importance of traditional agricultural shows, then look no further than the Ryedale Show which celebrates its 150th anniversary this year.

The one day event held in Welburn Park, Kirbymoorside began in 1855 and enjoys a reputation for quality livestock competition entries and trade stands.

This year’s event attracted more than 10,000 visitors among them the Duchess of Kent and her nephew Sir William Worsley.

Organisers say the show is run with both the farming community and townspeople’s interests in mind and there are attractions for everyone of all ages. We let photographer Andy Bulmer loose at the show and his wonderful collection of pictures tells the story better than our words.
