Organisers aim to 'weatherproof' Great Yorkshire Show

Great Yorkshire Show

Tickets are now on sale for the 2013 Great Yorkshire Show with organisers hoping to be better prepared to tackle the unpredictable British weather.
The Yorkshire Agricultural Society has set aside £500,000 to try and make sure the agricultural show does not fall victim to bad weather, as it did last year.
The 2012 event had to close after day one of three as unprecedented wet weather made much of the car park unuseable at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate.
“We never want to be in that situation again, it was heartbreaking to have to cancel the show,” said chief executive Nigel Pulling.
“Groundworks are already underway to put in extra roadways, drainage systems and hard standing around car park gateways. In addition, we are looking at acquiring a number of pieces of land to boost our car parking capacity.
“We obviously can’t control the weather but we will be doing our level best to make the show as ‘weatherproof’ as we can.”
This will be the 155th Great Yorkshire Show and it will be 175 years since the first Great Yorkshire was held.
Dates for this year’s Great Yorkshire Show are 9-11 July.
